New to the collection. German 1kg B1El Incendiary bomb dated 1937. Many 1,000’s were dropped on British towns & cities in the Blitz. It contained Thermite that would burn at 2,500*C. Looks like it was dropped, disarmed & poss. a bit of bomb shrapnel stuck in it too!

I love this map on display at Karlshorst Museum in . It was captured by Russian troops in the 'Fuhrerbunker' on 2 May 1945. Can imagine some very worried German staff officers studying this as they marked on the repeated Soviet advances. An amazing piece of history!
