hi, am i right in thinking that those tracked trailers were made by boulton and paul, also famous for their fighter in the battle of britain. all the best tony g.


You are correct and the fighter you mention was the Defiant which was fitted with a gun turret and had some success when first introduced but German pilots soon realised it's shortcomings and it had to be withdrawn from daylight operations and was subsequently used as a night fighter.
