    German Incendiary Bomb

    I have had this for a long time, I thought now would be a good time to find out what all the markings mean seeing as we have so many German ordnance fans in the Forum. Thanks in advance, Tony.

    Some great markings especially on that tail fin.B)
    You have makers mark (Rhs) in the fuze,batch numbers and the AZ83 type fuze itself.
    some of the other lads might be able to help you out on that though?
    Excellent example.

    cheers
