QUAD FIFTIES (4 K)   A typical quad-.50 mount somewhere in the ETO (click to enlarge). The gunner has christened the guns "Luckey". If anyone can identify this picture, name the unit, etc., please contact the Webmaster so appropriate credit can be given.


166th GUN BATTALION   Jeffrey Hall, who's researching the history of the 166th AAA Gun Battalion, his grandfather's unit, contributed this photo of "the best damn 90mm AAA outfit in the Pacific!" (click to enlarge). These sharp-shooting ack-ack boys have destroyed at least 25 Japanese planes (the placard on which they've painted their kill markings is cut off).
