The standard German 1kg incendiary bomb dropped on the UK in profusion and the baine of the Civil Defence services. Filled with thermite and made from electron magnesium and intiated by an impact fuze, the I.B. burnt with a fierce heat and intense white light.
This example in good condition retaining a good proportion of it's original finish with some visible inspection marks etc. and a line of stress marks showing where it passed through a roof or similar. It appears to have partially ignited burning through the thermite body to reveal the internal striker mechanism.This example is a true souvenir of the aerial Blitz which has probably been extinguished by the smart action of a fire watcher or warden.
