    Unknown bomb loaded in a Wellington Bomber

    Who knows this bomb that is loaded to a Wellington Bomber. As far as I can see it is not the regular HC bomb 2000 or 4000 lb.
    This bomb is smaller.

    If you can wait a while (month or two) I could look up the Squadron Occurence Book and see what loads it carried.

    Appears to be Vickers Wellington IC W5439 OJ-X of 149 Squadron "East India" operating out of RAF Mildenhall. Aircraft lost Het Broek, Netherlands, 12 June 1941.
