Original WW2 Military Documents for sale

Objects Dropped from the Air

Ministry of Home Security: London: 1944.

8.5 x 5.5 inches, 21 x 14 cms. 70 pages, 83 illustrations to assist British civil defence workers and police officers to recognise, and evaluate the danger of, the many types of objects falling from the wartime skies in Britain including unexploded radio-controlled bombs, high explosive and incendiary bombs, parachute mines, flying bombs, whistle devices for screaming bombs, auxiliary petrol tanks, message tubes, jettisoned radio equipment, leaflet containers, message tubes, ammunition cases, etc., etc.

Original printed wrappers, clean and complete internally although original staples rusty with surface rust marks on the outer pages. Would benefit from simple re-stapling.

First published in 1941 as a much slimmer and less comprehensive work, this 3rd edition of 1944 was greatly revised and expanded to take account of the greater range of incoming downwards-falling material.

Tin-hat time indeed.
