Re: Sqn Ldr Reginald J Peacock - Blenheim Ace

Can anyone explain Peacocks tactics? There was presumably four 0.303 MGs in a gun pack under the fuselage of the Blenheim, one in the wing and a single Vickers in the turret. Did he have some kind of plan of avoiding an attack and perhaps getting the Bf 109 to overshoot and then firing on it with the front guns. Close co-operation with the gunner suggests a last minute manoeuvre to avoid an attack?
