Hello Roland1369,
thank you for this helpful information. Do you know if this weapon was used by the Royal Navy?
Best regards

Yes, but it is unlikely this vessel was originally armed with this weapon. Vessels such as this in the Royal Navy usually got much older and lighter weapons. The Germans used this weapon extensively as the FLAK 28 on both naval vessels and land mounts. It is more likely that the Germans armed this vessel.
