INERT DEACTIVATED. Rare, British RNAS, WW1, 1915 Dated Quarter Sectioned thin cased 65Lb RL (Royal Laboratories) Aerial Bomb. Sn 16693 - 16693

INERT DEACTIVATED. This is a very rare British RNAS WW1, 1915 dated quarter sectioned thin cased 65Lb RL (Royal Laboratories) aerial bomb and was one of the first aerial bombs used by the British, especially by the RNAS. The bomb was recovered from the R.N.A.S (Royal Naval Air Service) Station at Meadway on the Isle of Grain which was a First World War Royal Navy Air Service (RNAS) seaplane base and Marine Experimental Aircraft Depot once existed on the Isle of Grain. The seaplane base, commissioned in 1913, was one of the earliest naval air-stations. The Experimental Armament Section was established in late 1915 together with a Seaplane Test Flight and an Experimental Construction Section which together became the Marine Experimental Aircraft Depot. The bomb was quarter sectioned and the fins restored, including painting the bomb in the correct colours. The bomb is stamped on the top N RL.65LB. 10/15 (Naval) (Royal Laboratories) (65 pound). (October 1915 date). The bomb has the correct brass No 1 nose fuse complete with the arming vane which is stamped NoI I 12/16 (December 1916 date) GK 25 and a crowfoot. The bomb is also fitted with a rear arming vane which is stamped RL 2-17. The brass filling plug is fitted below the nose fuse. The bomb has the correct bomb shackle fitted. The interior of the bomb has sectioned brass gains for both fuses and a dummy filling. The bomb is made of light/mild steel sheet, filled with 37 lb Amatol. The length is 29.75 inches without the fuse and the diameter is 9 inches. The price includes UK delivery and no licence is required to possess it in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. Sn 16693
