RAF Spitfire - “Mod. XXX” - Toting Beer Casks to Soldiers in Normandy
British breweries donated free beer to soldiers during World War II, but just after D-Day, there was no room made to ship it over the English Channel. Spitfire mechanics and pilots worked together to modify pylons to carry either specially-modified drop tanks or beer casks to deliver brews to the troops. Official missions were stopped when the UK Tax Office warned brewers they would get in trouble for exporting beer abroad without paying taxes, but pilots still found ways to get beer where it was needed…
>Tax office threatens legal action against an industry that is providing charity to soldiers, at its own expense, whom are fighting a very real, and neighboring, threat to the freedom and security of the UK.
