    possible ww1 bomb

    Hi
    came across this discussion at the Great War Forum http://1914-1918.invisionzone.com/fo...ic=119186&st=0 about a possible ww1 bomb.

    The whole thing looks more like an argument than a discussion, but i'm intrigued to know what the bomb actually is.

    Any ideas?

    Hi Mad, thanks for the advice,
    here's the pics that you can't see, any good?. this is the description.

    It is 22 inches long, and 9 inches in diameter at the widest part. It has a 2 inch hole at the front (fuse?) end.
    At the rear there are 3 stabilizing fins, one of which has some sort of pin through it. Between the fins there is a 2 inch long protrusion with a screw in its side.
    There is a single fin in line with the one with the pin, near the fuse hole. It suggests that these two were used to carry/mount the device horizontally.
    The other side of the device has been flattened at some time...........

    Here is a sketch of the object. The tail end is not as pointed as in the sketches/photos above. In fact the diameter is 95mm just above the fins. This part is bolted onto the end of the body with 6 bolts

    This bomb look strangly with the GB WW1 incendiray bomb carcass fitted by the pistol N3 which one must sees the tube carries initiating cartridge and magnesim composition initiater
    The fuze would miss since this bomb would have lost its conical tail part.
