Anti-Aircraft Gun, Swindon Works, 1940s

This anti-aircraft 6-pounder navel gun was manufactured for the Admiralty in W Shop at Swindon Works during World War II. It comes with a mounting that would have allowed it to be fixed to the ground, a building roof or a small ship and a shield to protect the gunner. Although this gun is small in size, most anti-aircraft guns required weeks of intensive training, particularly if you joined an anti-aircraft regiment. Although the anti-aircraft guns that were positioned on the Home Front coastal defences were not particularly effective they did shoot down a number of German V1 flying bombs (doodlebugs) during their time in operation
