Rare Unique Wwii Ww2 British Secret Mission "wood For Wood" Inert Dummy Bombs For Sale

Rare Unique Wwii Ww2 British Secret Mission

THESE WOOD BOMBS ARE NOT WEAPONS AND NOT DANGEROUS IN ANY FASHION. THE TWO WOOD BOMBS DESCRIBED BELOW ARE INERT, HAVE NEVER HELD EXPLOSIVES NOR ANY TYPE OF LIVE FUSE ETC. THEY ARE NOT WEAPONS OF ANY KIND NOR EVER HAVE BEEN. THEY CANNOT BE RIGGED NOR ALTERED IN ANY WAY TO BECOME ANY TYPE OF WEAPON. THESE WOOD BOMBS WERE CREATED TO FAKE OUT THE GERMANS. THEY ARE NOT REAL BOMBS, PERIOD.

RECENT ESTATE SALE DISCOVERY, ORIGINAL WORLD WAR IIBRITISHWOOD & METAL INERT AERIAL BOMBS.

"WOOD FOR WOOD"

THESE SIMULATED BOMBSWERE CREATED BY THEBRITS TO BE DROPPED ON "FAKE" GERMAN WOOD BASES,WOOD WAR PLANES EVEN WOOD TOWERS AND HANGERS. ALL FAKE. THESELIFE SIZE WOOD REPLICASWERE A VAIN ATTEMPT TO DIVERT THE BRITISH FROM BOMBING THE REAL GERMAN PLANES AND BASES AND WASTING THIER BOMBS. THE BRITISH BUILT SIMILAR SIMULATED AIRFIELDS.THE BRITS STARTED MAKING SYMBOLIC WOOD BOMBS TO DROP ON THE WOODGERMAN PLANES. THESE WOOD BOMBS WOULD CARRY THE MESSAGE IN GERMAN, "WOOD FOR WOOD" THIS TACTIC INFORMED THE GERMANS THE BRITS WERE ONTO THIER TRICKERY. SO GOES THE LEGEND.I FOUND A WONDERFUL WEB SITE ABOUT THE"WOOD FOR WOOD" MISSION AND THEY HAVE PHOTOS OF THE IDENTICAL WOOD BOMBS. THEY ALSO HAVE AN IN-DEPTH HISTORY ABOUT THIS LITTLE KNOWN PART OF WWII HISTORY. THE ARTICLE MENTIONED SOME WOOD BOMBS WERE 4 FT. LONG. I AM NOT 100% SURE THESE WERE THE EXACT SIZE BUT ABSOLUTELY THE SAME CONSTRUCTION AND DESIGN.

DESCRIPTION:BOTH BOMBS ARE IDENTICAL. JUST OVER 13" TALL ANDWITH A 9" CIRCUMFERENCE.THEY WEIGH ABOUT 1 1/2 LBS EACH. THE NOSE CONEI BELIEVE TO BE SOLIDALUMINUM BILLET WITH A BRASS THREADED INSERT. THE THREADS ARE LARGER THAN A LAMP FIXTURE THREADING. THE CONES HAVE A LEDGE OR LIP PROTRUDING FROM THE CONES. SEEMS IT WAS A (CATCH/RELEASE) TAB. THE CONE IS ATTACHED TO THE WOOD BODY BY BRASS BRADS. THELATHE TURNED TAPERED HARDWOOD BODY IS 10" LONG. BOTH UNITS HAVE FOUR STEELSTABILITY FINS ALSO ATTACHED TO THE WOOD WITH BRASS BRADS. BOTH ARE DRILLED OUT ABOUT 1/4" FROM TOP TO BOTTOM.

THE BOMBS MAY HAVE BEEN RIGGED WITH LAMP HARDWARE AND BASES, MAYBE. THIS IS THE EXACT CONDITION I FOUND THEM IN. THEY STILL HAVE DUST, COBWEBS AND EVEN ATINY DEAD SPIDER. I DON'T KNOW IF THESE WERE MADE FOR WOOD DECOY BOMBS OR REPLICATEDAS LAMPS. EITHER WAY, THEY WOULD BE VERY EASY TO REPURPOSE INTO STUNNING LIGHTING WITHOUT ALTERING THE BOMBS IN ANYWAY.

CODITION: EXCELLENT WITH MINOR SURFACE RUST ON THE STEEL FINS, SMALL SCTATCHES ON THE WOOD BODIES,THE ALUMINUM BILLET CONES WOULD POLISH UP BEAUTIFULLY IF YOU SO DESIRED.I HAVE NOT TOUCHED THESE ANDI'LL LEAVE THAT UP TO YOU.

THESE RAREVINTAGE WOOD BOMBS WOULD MAKE AN AWESOME DISPLAY IN ANY COLLECTION AS IS OR RESORED AS REALLY COOL LIGHTING. A FANTASTIC EXAMPLE OF LITTLE KNOWN WWII HISTORY. YOU WON'T FIND THESE RELICS AT WAL-MART ANYTIME SOON!

ASK ANY QUESTIONS & GOOD LUCK BOMBING! I mean THESE ARE NOT WEAPONS NOR REAL BOMBS!
