    DEACTIVATED INERT. WW2 1940 Manchester Blitz Partially Ignited ARP Recovered German 1Kg Incendiary bomb. O 1573 - O 1573

    DEACTIVATED INERT. Each Christmas, Manchester remembers the anniversary of the bloodiest 48 hours in the city's history - the December 1940 blitz.More than 800 civilians were killed in two nights of intense bombing which ended on Christmas Eve. This is a German WW2 1Kg Incendiary bomb recovered by an ARP (Air Raid Precautions) warden during the Manchester blitz. The bomb partially ignited when dropped evidenced by the gaping melted hole in its hollow alloy casing. These bombs were air dropped in containers by German bombers. The bombs were made of a magnesium alloy body and fuse holder which would burn brightly and furiously. The filling was thermite which burns at a very high temperature and thus ignited the magnesium body. The body has three tail fins of pressed steel with a steel reinforcing ring at the tail soldered together in four pieces and held to the bomb by short steel pins. The tail fins retain their original green paint. One fin has original black paint stencilled ‘218 JP/150K’. There are no visible markings on the casing or alloy nose fuse. The price includes UK delivery. NB No licence is required to own this inert deactivated ordnance in the UK. O 1573
