    Interesting piece, surfing around found: expendable BSK (BombenSchaltKasten) containing 36 pcs maybe 1kg incendiaries.
    Wonder if that tag was knocked off the bomb or maybe just found from some office/storage, looks intact.
    I did not find the exact Fl 53221 part reference but these may help with something else:

    Hi Boxmike, thanks for the links. They are useful references.

    I actually have a 1kg incendary which had gone off and partially burnt which was then extinguished. My Uncle picked it up after an air raid on Nottingham in 1941.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Sorry Adrian,

    forgot the link to original data I found about the thread.

    Bristol Past : Fishponds Local History Society

    Your uncle ever told about these times and how did he pick up that one?
