    Hey guys I'm new to the site and haven't figured out how to post pics yet so let me give you a verbal of what I have and I will try to post some later.
    20 years ago I found an old inert bomb in a house I was goin to remodel so it went home with me . Its 6ft 8 inches tall and 21 inches in diameter. It appears like it was cable hung and there is a hole about 3 inches for HE I believe. The fins on the bottom are surrounded by a circular shroud. I have been trying to identify it on and off for 20 years I was a fire control tech on F-14s in the Navy and made contact with most of my old Ordanance buddies but all they could tell me is it was Really old

    I think the best bet would be to get a photograph showing the dimensions of the bomb, another idea would be to post pictures on here:

    British Ordnance Collectors Network - Inert Ordnance from WW1, WW2 and more - Inert Ordnance Identification And Militaria Collectors Resource

    Thanks and I hope this helps
