    1 LB Rocket

    I ask for information about this 1 LB Rocket. I only have this steel container. Filled or made by Brocks. UK.
    What does the rocket look like and does it have a stick? How is it used?

    Thank you glevum for a quick reply.
    The length of my container is 15" to the start of the base cone and 16.5"overall length.
    If the rocket you show is 16.4" long it would not fit into my container.
    I realise you use documentation but logic prevails. Flat base does not fit.

    Just a guess, although the cap is definitely for a "Rocket, Signal, 1-lb Service Mk3", the container is for a different but similar rocket such as "Rocket, Light and Sound, 1-Lb, MkI"

    "Rocket, Signal, 1-lb Service Mk3" was packed in Cylinder, No 261, Mk I, length 17.12 in, diameter 2.55 in.

    Thanks for that Tim & glevum.
    I had not considered a cap on the wrong container.
