    Manufacture variations on 1000lb base plates

    Hi,
    Here are a few manufacture variations for base plates attached to 1000lb bombs. The other side of the plates are dated 1942. The RAF and RAAF used both these types here in Australia. No need to go to the gym if you lift one of these every day, as very heavy items.
    Cheers,
    Invest

    Hello Steve,
    Both these variations are displayed in a small wartime collection in a local town.
    I only have the variation type 2 in my own collection.
    Cheers,
    Jason
