  • Short Summary

    Some fairly good gun camera material from RAF fighters attacking enemy ground targets.

  • Description

    Unissued / unused material - dates and location unclear or unknown.

    Title cards inform us that this material from RAF VIII Fighter Command was taken in April 1944 during an attack on a ground target.

    Dark camera gun shots - machine gun and rocket attacks on ground targets. Targets include buildings, airfields (good shots), ships on canal, trains, industrial buildings. Also includes shaky dog fight material in combat with German planes.

    Cataloguer's Note: As with all gun camera material this varies in quality some of it is poor, some very usable - MD.
