RAF065 Anti-Aircraft Bren Gun Team
Once the Luftwaffe began attacking RAF airfields and other ground installations every kind of weapon was utilized in their defence.
Here, a .303 Bren Gun is on its AA mounting and ready to ?have a go? at any low-flying German aircraft. Both RAF ground crew are wearing ?08? pattern webbing (blancoed in RAF grey) and one also carries a .303 Lee Enfield.
At the height of the Luftwaffe?s attacks during the Battle of Britain many Royal Air Force airfields were being put out-of-action. In order to continue fighting many fighter squadrons were dispersed around the country and made use of any large grass areas that could land and take-off the Spitfires and Hurricanes?
Sports grounds and farmers? fields were among the favorites.
