Catalogue ref: INF 3/1426Links to the Catalogue

Experimental drawing for ‘Fire-bomb Fritz', an animated incendiary bomb whose expression – comic, rather than terrifying – was intended to reassure people of the harmlessness of incendiaries if tackled in time – see accompanying illustration in INF 3/1425 for Colonel Stirrup Pump.
