War pilots learn to fear ground fire : one of the new German anti-aircraft cannon which is being tested in the Spanish war

A man in civilian clothes (sneakers, short, and shirt) sits on a Flak 30 20 mm anti-aircraft gun made by the German firm Rheinmetall-Borsig Mauser. The gun is sited in a stone-lined emplacement. Two rifles lie on the ground. This type of gun was supplied by Nazi Germany to Nationalist forces in the Spanish Civil War.
