Two 20mm anti aircraft guns have arrived in the yard for refurbishment on behalf of the Parachute regiment, Essex.  The guns have a dark history as they were used by the Argentine Air Force against British forces during the Falkland's war.  After the war ended these  guns were shipped back to UK and used as 'Gate Guardians'.  DAS brief is to refurbish and deliver back to the Para's later this year.
