The heart of the site is the forum area, including:
Does anyone know of a museum that has one, and would maybe permit me to take measurements.
While you're waiting for replies, here's some entertainment: SPIGOT GUN issue title is TAKE THAT - British Pathé
The Royal Armouries museum in Leeds has at least one, although not (I think) on public show..
Not sure if they will let you measure it without a valid reason... they are section 5 prohibited weapons!
Just looked at that... The weapon shown in the clip is a Blackard Bombard.. is this what you are looking for...?
.. or the SOE/OSS clandestine spigot gun?
WW2: O.S.S. The Spigot Gun (1943) - YouTube
(Leeds have both...)
DEMSS Kineton museum should have one.
So to many of 11 EOD Regt Tp museums.
Didn't know Kineton had a museum. Is it open to the public?
It has examples of the Blacker bombs up on the mezzinine (HE & HESH) but not the projector..
It also has the sight for the "other" spigot gun, but not the gun or the bomb.
Access to the Ammunition museum is by permission of CO DEMSS..
It is the blackard bombard mate, as used by the home guard
