June 2023

This month we were lucky to take delivery of this 3.7 inch anti aircraft gun, all the way from Dumfries Aviation Museum.

These were the type of gun that were on top of the Maunsell Forts out in the estuary, this may have come from Red Sands or Shivering Sand, we are waiting for more information from the museum. There was also a number of these guns within the village of Allhallows during WW2 and they were fed their ammunition from Slough Fort. The gun has been positioned facing the Thames as it would have been when in action.
