    Pretty wild stuff. Looking at the last two pics, they look like German bombs. Am I correct on that one? Not an expert on bombs by any means but fuses look like they are a Luftwaffe type.

    He says in his post that the last two are German.

    Whoops, my bad. :oops:

    Didn't look at the bombs as much as the fuses. Seen those before. Can't remember when but it has to be at least 25 years. They had a funky ring in them that was an anti-tamper device, under the outter top ring. Unscrew the fuse, pull it up and bang (in a big way).

    Just can't place where I saw them before.

    Bugging me.

    With the guys, thanks for sharing! :D

    From a 'historical preservation' point of view, is there a 'safe' (as far as that is possible in your trade) way to defuse them and preserve them? That Sd250 was in BEAUTIFUL condition, seems a shame to have to destroy it if it could be avoided somehow???
    (I know, I know..."you wanna preserve it? ---- off and defuse it yourself..!!!" :lol: )

    "For Sale: 1 x 4000 lb German WW2 bomb, dropped only once."
