The author ot this article describ ing a tail gunner's part in defending a bomber against an attack by enemy has been on many trips to Berlin--as a gunner in a Royal Air Force bomber. He has written a book, "Tail Gunner," which is a best seller in England. This article is taken from "london Calling," official pub! of the British Broadcasting Corpora tion. It is published in the Target as a well-written description of what a gunner may expect when he goes into action for the first time. 1 Wl\!3 feeling very hot and uncanfortable in my turret.

The crump a f the shells around and below us was continuous. Many times I was blown hard against the side of my tur.ret (r off the seatJ yet I hardly noticed L--=' barrage; I was waiting ... waiting to be attacked) waiting to defend our airplane from the fighters flying around and above us. The Fighters W e r e Among Us ... Jmd thenJ suddenly) the fighters were among us. They no longer seemed to be hovering at a diatanceJ but were very near and very active) like seagulls when the catch begins. For the moment our p lane was Ieft alone and those behind were g etting the brunt of the attacks. I saw one fighter burst into flames) roll over on its back and dive down toward the sea leaving a trail of black smoke behind it. I had to keep on looking around meJ peering t hrough the smoke clouds) turning my t urret firs t one way and then onother. Th roug h all the medley and the noise of she l l -bursts I heard the navigator giving directions to the pilot. We were on the bombing run-up now. The navigator didn't seem t o notice all the commotion of flak and shell-bursts around him; only the target below. AB I heard him giving his directions of "leftJ '1rightJ" and "steady)" I could feel t h e plane turn and check as the p.ilot made the corrections. "Bombs gone!" h e f inalLy said .. thenJ almost I got a wizard sight." Waiting and WonderinA All the time l was waiting and wondering w hy we were not being attacked. I almost wished WB were; then I could do something. As it wasJ all I could do was t o sit and watch and wait .. wait for our turn an d watch them shooting at our airplanes. Under n pnnal conditions r should have been absorbed and scared by the flak bursting so frequently and so near. The crum ps undelneatnJ behind and on either side were one after another almost with out pause. Several times I felt the jar and thud as splinters hit us and tore through fuselage and tailJ and yet only part of my m i n d registered and realized the fact. I couldn't do anything about it anyway. I co uld only sit and watch and hope t hat we should get no fatal hits. My mind was absorbed with the fighters and wondering when they were going to attock. I could do something" with then--that was what I was there for. I was there to fight back butJ you seeJ I c ould not fight unless they first came at us. Tha t was what was getting me down . watching themJ waiting) and I just c ouldn't do anything about i t . Almost as soon as the navigator had "Bombs gone" I saw a fighter diving down on us. I immediately called through t o the pilot: Fighter diving down p o r t quarter up! I started g iving him directions for turning. I e levated my guns and got him in my s ights. As we turned) the Nazi fighte r passed over our heads. Then h e was out o f my range of vision. As soon as I lost sight o f t his one I saw another o n e climbing up a t usJ and called t hrough t o the pilot: "Fighter starl:oard quarter down." The fighter started firing at u s almost as soon as I spotted itJ and I saw the flashes from his gun s and the trace.r s streakin g past us. I opened fireJ although he was at extreme rangeJ hoping t o put him off. I had plenty of ammunition Gnd could afford to use it. He came steadily inJ firing in burstsJ and I replied with my guns. He s till came inJ getting nearer . and I continued t o fire back. I coul d hear and f eel his shells and bullets strikin g the fuselage iust behind me. Still he came inJ nearer and nearer. I felt no antagonism) but was calm yet determined to shoot him down. I had. no feeling of fright ... only of amazement that I had not shot him d own. We seemed to have been s h ooting a t e a ch other for so l o ng. I was also amazed that I had not been hitJ a s the bullets and cannon sh.ells were pouring all a round me continuously. Perhaps I had been hit and didn 1 t kno w i t ... I would look around afterwards. 'I've Got Him' QUT of the c o rner o f m y eye I saw part of the tale plane ripped a w ay by c annon shell and a lm ost at t h e same t im e the fighter rolled ove r o n his back and went into a spin. I felt a v a s t feeling of relief surge through m e a s I called to the pilot: "I've got him." The whole ccmbat seemed t o have gone on for a very lang t imeJ alt hough it reany could have lasted on l y for a few seconds. I began to feel very scored. You seeJ I was too intent while w e were being at tacked t o feel at all enedJ but now that was a lull for a few seconds I felt my heart pounding against my chest and my throat and mouth felt dry. O utwardl y ) t hough) I w a s perfectly calm and r eady' for further attacks. Five minutes later we w e r e f lyin g peacefully o nce more. Th e sun was still hotJ b u t was n o l onge r b eating into my turret. We had turned and were flying for home. l o o ked back at what had been a medley o f f i ghting airplanes a few minute s before. Now the sky was c lear.
