Drop canister for the SD-1 bomblets. Our example was recovered from Poland, in keeping with the use of such items on the Eastern Front. Photograph as was in recovered state.

When working for a German firm, I once dropped the fluffy 'fact' into a meeting. Only one person in the room got the reference.

Morning Twitter! German SD-1 bomblet. In 1940 2 million examples were captured from the French. They went on to produce their own examples. Mostly used on the Eastern Front, however they were used against the UK too.

Not at all, just have nothing to offer the museum world in the duck posting craze we read about this morning.

Pets kept on a lead are indeed welcome, although have to draw the line at ducks.

Not as great as one might want to imagine, however certainly embracing the use of more modern materials.
