WW1 Anti-Aircraft Gun


WW1 3in 20cwt Anti-Aircraft Gun on Dixon Trailer.


Manufactured in 1916 by Vickers Son & Maxim (VSM), it is a Mark IV gun, probably the only one left in the world. It has the Mark IV sliding breech and is proofed to fire 8oz black powder blank charge. It has been completely restored by John Slough of London. The sight has been restored using original drawings and is in full working order. Most of these guns were left behind in France following the Dunkirk evacuation, this one survived because it was taken to Denmark and put in position by the sea in a harbour. The iconic black and white photograph was taken by a German soldier on the seafront at Dunkirk.
