In the distance cranes can be seen, assisting in the rebuilding of London after the Blitz. The Thames in the foreground is busy with boats and barges, coming and going under Blackfriars Bridge

2 PDR gun mounting, 1943

A side view of a 2-pounder pom-pom gun mounting built for the Admiralty at Swindon Works. This image was taken in the AM Shop in February 1943 and shows the ammunition positioned in the side trays. The barrels and breaches were already supplied, but Swindon carried out the swivel and elevating gear manufacture on this particular quick firing gun. Swindon was also responsible for the manufacture of mountings and shields for Hotchkiss guns, 6-pounder guns and 13.5in hyper velocity guns, as well as parts for Bofors, 3.7in AA and 25-pounder guns
