Object description

image: a view through a corrugated iron arch, looking out on an anti-aircraft battery at night. In the centre of the site two men stand on the roof of a hut next to an aerial, keeping watch. They are surrounded by anti aircraft guns pointing up at the sky. The scene is silhouetted against a smokey night sky, lit by searchlights.
