1000 lb Bombs at the Swindon Works, 1941
This image taken in March 1941 shows two 1000lb bombs sat next to each other in the X Shop, one with a fin and one without. The 1000lb bomb was generally used on industrial targets and was carried by the RAF on the Hawker Typhoon. Apart from the 2,000lb and 4000lb bombs, this was the largest of the standard bombs used by the RAF, with almost 1 million being made nationally during the war years
