AW Bomb enamel sign.
20 x 30cm approx. enamel sign explaining precautions to be used when handling A W Bombs. A W Bombs were more commonly known as the No.76 Grenade or Self Igniting Phosphorous Hand or Northover Projector Grenade and were in widespread use with the Home Guard. Stored in crates, the enamel sign was screwed to the inside of the lid as a warning to users. A W was a reference to the manufacturers Allbright and Wilson.
Sign in excellent condition with minor nibbles to the edges.
