No so rare in fact------

The RAF Regiment made extensive use of Oerlikon guns in the anti-aircraft role. These were the principal armament for its Light Anti-Aircraft squadrons in North Africa, the Middle East, Italy, and North Western Europe, until the introduction of the Bofors 40/L60 40mm gun from 1943, although many squadrons retained a mix of guns until the end of World War 2. Squadrons in the Far East were equipped exclusively with Oerlikons.
..........and that is why they are in the OOB... and as a 91 ( rare) code ....if you don't agree, feel free to edit the OOB's to suit yourself. I will corrected the photo
