    Hi All.

    I have a bomb attack in Britain which quotes 232 Rounds H.A.A. (Heavy Anti Aircraft)
    9 rounds U.P.

    Any idea what the U.P. stands for?

    Most Likely UP stands for Unrotated Projectile. A small rocket fired from a Z Battery.
    Do you know which Regiments?

    Hi Hutt, no idea it was Aberdeen in 1943. Is states during a raid what AA fire was given.

    The HG had a AA battalion, although not sure here a z=battery would have been in Aberdeen.

    There were 3 HAA sites & 1 Z Battery in Aberdeen although I don't have the units involved. See Aberdeen map on my site.
