88mm Flak from below, Norway, 1945

88mm Flak from below, Norway, 1945

Here we see a German 88mm Flak gun in what appears to be a purpose built gun emplacement somewhere in Norway in 1945. From this angle we get a good idea of the impressive length of the gun barrel.

Many thanks to Pauline Law for allowing us to post these pictures, which came from her father Charles Rendell's collection. He served with the service echelons for No. 170 Squadron and then No.129 Squadron, and took part in the post-war liberation of Norway
