Nordenfelt anti-aircraft gun in V Shop, Swindon Works c.1915

This striking image shows a newly made 6 pdr Nordenfelt anti-aircraft gun complete with mounting platform and protective skirting. The manufacturing for all parts of the gun and surrounds was carried out in the Boiler (V) Shop. Some of the old equipment in V Shop was adapted for the deep boring of the gun barrels and breeches, but new machines were also purchased by Swindon Works for the specialised work. Due to the large amount of munitions work required for the war effort, a special arrangement was made for Swindon to purchase equipment and charge it to the Government account
