Ile de Cezembre

Postby jgoodden » 29 May 2015 12:11

I am new to this site - but read Cobrahistorians piece about the Ile de Cezembre.
I have a 78rpm BBC recording made on 02/09/1944 about the bombardment of the island. It was made on HMS Malaya by my dad. Currently I am looking for a turntable that will play it.
I live in the E.Midlands.

Hello,

according to the information I have found, the weapon had an extremely broad scatter regarding its projectiles. Therefore there was an initial attempt to focus the ammo pattern with a rod which should stabilize the barrel.

But after a while it was realized, that the scatter might be quite helpful regarding hitting a target which is hard to focus. Therefore the rod has been deleted after a while.

Best regards
Gert
