INERT German 1kg B1E Incendiary bomb.
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 particular example is in very pleasing condition with much of the original silvered finish to the body with clearly defined inspection stamps and codes. The fin retains approx 85% of it\'s green finish with clear black printed coding details. The whole bomb dis-assembles with all parts removable. An excellent example.
