    Default Term "tailgunner"

    Hello,


    What does it mean exactly in this sentence :
    "Tailgunner Tony, after bravely volunteering for political suicide mission
    in Iraq"

    I have an idea of what it does mean but I would like to have confirmation.


    Thank you

    Constantinos

    Hello Constantinos,

    In French, it's "mitrailleur arrière" or "mitrailleur de queue" (although the second one seems a bit odd to my chaste ears...)
    You can find both expressions in context here:
