Hi all,

The B25 waist gunners position has a couple of strangely shaped jars or barrels or firkins nearby http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

They're next to the hand held fire-extinguisher.I tried to leave my post and take a closer look but those pesky 109s took priority. Maybe I'll check further on landing. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Are they US official issue ??

Best Regards,
MB_Avro.

Hi all,

So...no replies that explain this...
Maybe a large bottle of Pencil Rolls....??

The two on the starboard side, mounted near the floor, are stored oxygen tanks. The one mounted on the wall on the port side is the cabin heater.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

They are spare pickles used to calibrate the Bombsight.... they test it at 25,0000ft and use a pickle barrel as the target.... you didn't think it was just a saying did you? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/sleepzzz.gif


Later on in the war when carpet bombing came to the fore and the US stopped caring who they bombed they were washed out and converted to carrying M&M's
