‘If you can match the battle's fateful minute With a stout heart and well directed gun’
A rare original WW2 Royal Navy anti-aircraft gunner's pocket book, published in 1941. This is a detailed guide for Naval gunners using both heavy and light anti-aircraft weapons. With sections on aiming off, sighting, eyeshooting, projectiles, recognition of enemy aircraft, the use of the various foresights and backsights, tracer, barrages, anti-ship fire and almost everything else a gunner would need to know about anti-aircraft fire. There are some excellent photographs and diagrams showing exactly how you should identify and then shoot down a Heinkel 111. The book is well illustrated with diagrams, photographs and drawings, including cartoons by Fougasse.
In very good condition. The card cover is in good condition, with only minor signs of use. The stapled binding is good and secure, although the original staples are rusty. The text and illustrations are in very good condition.
