BRIEF DESCRIPTION: World War II British paratroopers raid German Wurzburg radar station at Bruneval on the French coast in Operation Biting. Wearing step-in smocks (based on German Luftwaffe designs) and P-type helmets (with rear lip) they are only lightly armed with Sten guns, Bren guns and Enfield rifles and grenades. The "Jock" (mainly Scottish) paratroopers of C. Coy. 2nd Parachute Btn. successfully captures parts of the new German radar's controls and some prisoners and quickly exits the area, heading for the beach where they will rendezvous with Royal Navy landing craft and commandos. This was the first British parachute raid in history and was skillfully led by Major Frost, who later in the war would lead the British paras in the Arnhem drop. This image was painted as cover for VAE VICTIS wargames magazine, which is published by Histoire et Collections of France.
