    I forgot to say that I'm looking for any color pics about these 250 Lbs,to know the right color and all the marks written on it.

    Contact the RAF Armourers and if it is an official museum they will probably help!

    Thanks for your answer.The Museum is a little one.It's "Musée de la Résistance" in Toulouse city,in France.I try to help them,step by step,since few years ago.In memory of all people died for freedom.
    I think,it'll be very difficult for us to contact this organisation.
    Since a long time,I find items on web site and with kind collectors.

    Thanks so much

    Here is a link to a branch of the Royal Airforce Association specifically for armourers. They may be able to give you some advice if you contact them and explain about the museum and what you are trying to do.

    I have a copy of the Bomb Components manual (1943) , it shows the fuse you have but no color photos . I'd be willing to part with it if it helps , and you have a good trade . Good luck either way .
