So, anyone wanna take a guess at what's been lashed onto this Spit's shackles ?

Hint: - it's a IXe and the pic was taken in the summer of '44 http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Yep, tis indeed 18 gallon beer barrels - full of best bitter - lashed to the shackles, on its way to troops in Normandy http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I'd never heard of this practice before til I picked up a book recently on the history of the Spifire that had this pic in.

Why on earth would they carry beer? Its not as though it makes a good fuel reserve http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

No, that's a spitfire and it's probably from Kent... therefore I predict kegs of warm beer from the Shepard Neame brewery in Faversham. That'll show those jerry b*stards!
