Bofors gun crew from the King's African Rifles, 1939-1945 (c).

Photograph, World War Two, 1939-1945.

The Bofors 40 mm gun was the most widely used Allied anti-aircraft gun of the Second World War. The gun was quick firing, reliable and versatile. It had sufficient punch to knock out all types of aircraft and yet was light enough to be adapted to a mobile role. The gun had been adopted by 17 nations by the end of the War and a version of it is still in use with naval forces today.
