High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The Machine Gunners is a childrens historical novel by Robert Westall published in 1975. It was awarded the Carnegie Medal for that year, and in 2007 was selected by judges of the Carnegie Medal as one of the ten most important childrens novels of the past 70 years. A play based on the book has been written by the author, and it has also been adapted for television and radio. The story is set during the Second World War and deals with a group of children living in the North East of England.

Their town, Garmouth, regularly suffers from bomb attacks by the German Luftwaffe. The children make a game of collecting war souvenirs, e.g. incendiary bomb fins and pieces of shrapnel. One of the children, Chas McGill, finds a German He 111 that crashed in the area and takes a fully operational machine gun and two thousand rounds of ammunition, with the help of a friend, Cyril Cemtery/Cem Jones, intending to set up their own fortress.
