    Wilmington OVMS Find #2, MKIII 51.5lb Demo Bomb

    Well, this one tickles me to death. I thought I had found a WWI 100 lb practice bomb, but I looked through some of the old posts here and found out that this is a 51.5 lb MKIII Demolition Bomb. 36" long by 6" diameter. I'll have to repair one of the fins since the spotwelds were broken and maybe re-paint back to WWI olive drab and do the black centerline stripe. I bought this and the 4.7" at, what I think, were great prices. And here I was thinking of not going today..
