The gun on Carius' latest pictures is transported by rail, not mounted to fire from the railcar. :wink:

Not an expert in WW2 uniform, but it seems their eagles are Luftwaffe ones.

Hello

One picture from IWM. The caption says 88 mm. - but I think it is 12,8 cm. - or at least 10,5 cm.?

What do you think :)

Regards
Kurt

I think that I really wouldn't like to be on the receiving end of those.

Did anybody hear the BBC Radio 4 dramatisation of Len Deighton's book "Bomber"? The book is a wonderful even-handed piece of work and the BBC programme just excellent. If you are very quick you can still hear all 2 hours 40 mins of it on Radio 4 Extra at http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01708wx
