Let's hear it for Bristol, Gloster, Westland and last but not least Supermarine in Southampton.

Bristol produced the Blenheim and the Beaufighter and Of course the Rolls-Royce factory nearby produced the aero engines. Gloster producing the Gladiator and the Meteor and over 3,000 Hawker Typhoons at its factories.

Westland produced the Whirlwind and now concentrates on helicopters.

And finally Supermarine who's contribution escapes me for the moment.

The west country is the best, you knows it!

Sure hope it's included in on the BoB map.
