Complete, Falklands War Era, Inert Full Weight British WD & NATO Marked Drill Shorts Blowpipe (man-portable surface-to-air missile tube) With High Impact Carry Case & 1976 Dated Transit Case. O 1003 - O 1003
The Shorts Blowpipe is a man-portable surface-to-air missile that was in use with the British Army and Royal Marines from 1975. It was superseded by an interim design, Javelin, and later the Starstreak. The missile would be shipped as a single round in a storage cylinder/firing tube. The aiming unit would be clipped to the launch tube and fired from the operator's shoulder. To reduce the overall size of the container, the rear fins of the missile were stored in the larger diameter cylinder at the front of the tube (this also contained the Yagi antenna for transmitting guidance signals). During firing, the fins slipped onto the rear of the missile as it flies through and are held there by heat-activated adhesive tapes. This gives the launch container a unique shape, seemingly oversized at the front and extremely thin at the rear. Blowpipe were used by both sides during the Falklands War in 1982, with the targets being fast flying aircraft, flying low and using the ground to hide their approach. Blowpipe missiles were also used in the Afghanistan and Gulf War conflicts. This is a superb complete inert, purpose made, WD weighted drill Blowpipe firing tube, with carry and transit cases. The drill Blowpipe tube is weighted to replicate the weight of the live version when loaded with missile and cable. This would allow soldiers the opportunity to train in carrying a full size and weight inert version of the weapon and aiming (when guidance system attached). The tube is marked C0036 DRILL and is complete with its original green high impact plastic carry case with webbing shoulder and retaining straps and both are contained in its original green high impact transit case with removable lid and clasp fasteners. The transit case and carry case are profusely marked with stenciled British WD marks and NATO stores codes. A WD plate on the transit case is dated 1976 (illustrated inset in image 2 together with an image of a blowpipe missile in use in the field). The Blowpipe is accompanied by an MOD certificate dated 1988 certifying that the Blowpipe is inert/ free from explosives. The blowpipe in its transit case measures 61x12 x 14. Due to the size and heavy weight of this item delivery will be by arrangement and at cost. O 1003

Inert, Post 1960's, British, L18 A1, Anti Tank Bar Mine. O 836. - O 836
The L9- L18 High Explosive (HE) Anti Tank (ATK) series of Mines entered British service towards the end of the 1960's. A number of sub-variants of the Mine exist. They were an improvement on the traditional disc shaped Mines as they provided a larger coverage area per mine which allowed a large reduction of the number of mines deployed. The Bar Mines saw service "in anger" with small detachments of Special Forces of the British Army during the Gulf War of 1991. A number were captured from Kuwaiti Army stocks by the Iraqi Army in 1990, who subsequently used by them in the same conflict. It was reported that they disabled a number of M60 Patton tanks and other armoured vehicles belonging to the United States Marine Corps, even those fitted with mine-clearing ploughs. Unless the plough struck the mine squarely in the centre, the mine would often be rotated into a position in which it would blow up the track and front roller of the tank. The British Army has used the Bar Mine as demolition charges, for instance to blow holes in tough compound walls in Afghanistan and Iraq. This is an excellent original inert Bar Mine. The rectangular casing, measuring 47 1/2" x 4" x 3" is made of Brown coloured plastic. The body is embossed at both ends ' Mine ATK HE Blast L18 A1' and marked with original yellow paint 'Empty'. The casing of this example is empty with no inert filler and weighs 2.6 Kilos (when filled the Mine would weigh 11 Kilos). The arming fuse assembley is in place (illustrated). Price includes UK delivery. O 836.
