    Interesting! This is the first time I have heard of this weapon. I wonder how extensive it was used. I feel sorry for the guy operating the hand pump!

    Nice round !!!

    Interesting to see the actual shape of the round .. and the fin .... not surprising very similar to the early ariel "hand dropped" type of bombs !
