Dick Tindell (40 Sqdn) by the mid upper turret. It was the duty of the mid-upper to check out the taxi path of the liberators, both prior to take off and after landing. From their elevated position they had an excellent view of wing tips. The turret is a the Martin, which was used throughout the war. It was electrically driven and featured normal and high speed tracking. All our aircraft carried two point fives in the turret but some of the later aircraft produced could have carried cannons.
