Nice article Peter
As a post script to your interesting account of the Browning machine guns, my understanding, is that Supermarine (Vickers) had a lot of trouble with jamming of the rounds in the delivery trays etc. Someone suggested contacting Molins, a company manufacturing cigarette making machines, within days Molins had sorted out the problems! A good example of sideway thinking, and the Spitfire could use its 6 or 8 machine guns to good effect!!
