    65lb British Bomb WWI

    I am attempting to locate photos, data and drawings of a 65lb bomb commonly used by the RNAS and RFC in WWI.

    Thanks for any assistance you may be able to provide.

    There is a good colour pic of one of these on Dugup's home page. Maybe he will have some more pics of the bomb.

    Afraid this is about all I've got. Not sure about the bomb, different fins, but about the right size and looks to be in the same family.

    Hi,

    Let me know if you still require info about these, I have a 65 pounder in my collection and have copies of the RAF manual with scaled drawings.

    Rob.
