    British & German sabotage devices

    Already quite a few years ago i bought, at a trade-fair, a photocopy of a WW2 british Bomb-Disposal publication apparently named "RED"(which apperently was published in more than 1edition), which I have never heard about otherwise. The titlepage is missing. It is similar to the S.O.E.equipment catalog, but has, besides the pictures much less written documentation. It lists sabotage equipment of german, italian and british origion, used by the germans and is the only publication listing german sabotage equipment in WW2 that I have ever seen. At the end, on the last page, the following code is written, which I think is like an adress of this publication : (B45/329) 6000 8/45 W.O.P. 23263 Does any member here know anything about this publication ?
    Regards,
    Bellifortis.

    Title is Enemy Sabotage Equipment. The document was put together by Rothschild's department in MI5 but released through the War Office. The printer's imprint that you quote is for the second edition. The decode of the imprint is (B45/329) [Warrant number], 6000 [quantity printed], 8/45 [date printed], WOP [printer War Office Press] 23263 [printers job number].
