The foretop of HMS VINDICTIVE armed with two 1 1/2-pounder quick firing pom-pom gun and six Lewis guns. This position was specially fitted out for the Zeebrugge Raid to allow fire to be directed from an elevated position down on to German defences of the mole. Note the mattresses used to protect the foretop from the effects of bullets and shell splinters.
