david nower Posted June 15, 2022 Share Posted June 15, 2022 Our museum has been given an unusual bomb , it looks like a WW1 bomb but is small , and made in copper and lacquered steel . It is about 120 mm diameter , has a plug at the front and a fuse screwed in the rear , the actual fuse is missing but screwed in , there is a hole behind the propellor for I assume a safety pin or clip , it seems when dropped it falls nose first and the threaded rod once free of the propellor hits the fuse initiator by sheer momentum . All very odd and there are no markings whatsoever . open to suggestions as I cannot find anything similar to either the bomb or the fuse tho all I know is it was in the possession of someone in the navy in Ww1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
