This is the twelfth photo essay of my visit to the Imperial War Museum. An excellent place to spend a day or two, specially if you are any way militarily inclined. Great place. After spending almost 3 hours on the ground floor and basement, I went up to the first floor.
Some more views of the inside of this plane. Amazing stuff. But this was a cut away. The RAF Museum in London has a full one and here’s the photo essay on this massive machine.
This was a truck used by the Desert Rats, or the Long Range Desert Group which operated behind enemy lines in North Africa. Fascinating.
Couple of cipher machines used by the Germans and Brits during WW2.
This is a two man canoe used in the Cockleshell Raid of 1943. This tiny operation reduced the Second World War by 6 months or so Churchill said. Just read the story of the men who did the raid, it is an amazing story. Truly amazing men.

This is a 1 pounder Mark II anti aircraft gun dating back to the WW1 times.
