Book of the Blacker Bombard.
Uncommon manual published by Gale & Polden in 1944 for the 29mm Spigot Mortar or Blacker Bombard. The 32 page manual features b&w illustrations throughout showing Home Guard personnel demonstrating the use of the Mortar and a fold out, colour, poster showing ammunition and exploded views.
This unusual example is slightly foxed with bumped edges and corners but is in otherwise clean condition.
