Operation Cricket: BUF Railway Gun Battalion troops

2 BUF Railway Battalion Guards

 Local resistance reports these troops have become a common site around Alderly Edge in blue boiler suits, field caps and German paratrooper helmets wearing grey hip length leather pilots jackets, either mounting motor patrols, on the trains that serve the railway gun or in the cave dug into the Edge. Armed with a combination of MP28 Sub-machine guns and Lee-Enfield Rifles they appear professional and alert. The neckscarfs (useful to protect the throat when the Engines are in full smoke and you’re manning  an AA gun or machine gun) are coloured according to specialisty (gun crew, guards, anti-aircraft troops, Engine crew etc;)  Officers wear similar outfits but with peaked caps.
