Default A curious weapon

I found this site an interesting report with some curious photographs showing a Spitfire of the RAF carrying beer kegs under the wings. I've never seen this. Can anyone tell what the purpose of it ? To see these curious and unbelievable photos, visit the link below:

If I recall, the squadron would send a plane back to the UK after D-Day for official stuff. They wod then sneak the beer over since it was not a priority item in the supply system.
