HANDBOOK OF ENEMY AMMUNITION PAMPHLET NUMBER 1

Details

These handbooks were issued to all field units in contact with the enemy in Europe and Africa and were intended for use by all personnel to help them recognise enemy ammunition. Specialist personnel were then trained to handle and disarm/destroy the ammunition so found. Each pamphlet covers a number of items and this issue covers a number of German fuzes including anti-aircraft percussion and small calibre fuzes. It also contains details of German 8.8cm HE shell the 7.5 separate shell and two 10.5 and two 15cm shells. Also covered are the 1 kg incendiary bombs with which the British were becoming very familiar as the Luftwaffe pressed home its raids on towns and cities in the Blitz.
