Blenheim Mk.IV code (FV-L) of No.13 Operational Training Unit. Remote control turret under nose are twin .303 machine guns. Dorsal turret mounts twin mounted .303 machine guns in a Frazer Nash turret.
During WWII the Blenheim was used as a light bomber, anti-shipping, maritime patrol, trainer, night fighter and target tug. By 1944 most of the surviving Blenheim's were retired from front-line duties, and ending up in training units or sent to aircraft mechanics schools.
