Abstract:

In 1947 the Armament Research Establishment at Fort Halstead UK investigated water as a temporary expedient for the barricading of aerial bombs stored on airfields. Galvanised steel tanks were used to hold the water. The findings in Appendix 1 of their report no. 948 are repeated verbatim.
