    Default 250 lb LD bomb

    Hi all,

    anybody come across the similar record in any of BC records?
    I was trying to find such a type of bomb in my books but no change.
    With help of Mr. Google I came to the conclusion that it was the normal 250 lb GP bomb but with the special fuse allowing the Long Delay before expolsion.

    Anyone can confirm/disconfirm this idea?

    TIA

    Hi Pavel,

    That was my understanding as well. Also the type of fuse eg 37A pistol was for delay action bombs.

    Regards,

    John.
