A tail end turret from a bomber. Where the tail end Charlie used to sit. They would not be able to wear a parachute as the turret was so small, this combined with the location of the turret and the desire of the enemy to stop them firing at them meant a lot of these men were sadly killed during WW2. The pupils learn all about this bomb group from a very knowledgable volunteer and find out about the different individuals in the bomb group and information like what different coloured bullets would do.
