BWO-0001, WWII British 25pdr Propaganda Projectile with Surrender Leaflet

This item is listed for historical interest only. It is not for sale.
Item #17321

This now deactivated projectile was found in Germany east of Aachen. It contained a quantity of surrender leaflets in German. These shells would be set to explode over enemy lines and would shower them with the leaflets. Attached is one of the leaflets taken from it. It is entitled "An Allied Officer Speaks to German Officers". It asks German officers to surrender with their men as the war is lost and they will be needed to rebuild Germany. The projectile is complete (deactivated) and is unfired. Fuze is dated 6/41 and nicely marked. The iron body is pitted from years in burial, but remains nice on the inside, which accounts for the condition of the leaflets that were found inside.
