Village Inn

Village Inn was the codename for the Airborne Gun Laying in Turrets (AGLT) radar-aimed gun turret fitted to some Lancaster bombers in 1944.

The AGLT system was devised to allow a target to be tracked and fired-on in total darkness, the target's range being accurately computed as well as allowing for lead and bullet drop.

49 Squadron who pioneered the development of the AGLT system were given the opportunity to be the first squadron to use it in combat.
