WW2 bomb explodes underwater in Poland during attempt to defuse it

A British bomb left over from the second world war has been detonated in Poland. The 5,400kg Tallboy bomb was dropped by the RAF in 1945 during an attack on a German cruiser. It was rediscovered in September 2019 during works to deepen a waterway near the port of Szczecin. Navy divers from Poland had rigged a small explosion to disarm the bomb but instead it went off. There were no injuries.

    The "Tall boy " bomb (5200lb/2400kg device.) was designed by Barnes Wallace( bouncing bomb designer), it was used successfully on the Tirpitz (Tromso fjord- Norway) .
    The reason it didn't go off, is generally the fuse, either a type 58 impact fuse or a type 47 time delay fuse. If either fuse failed then the main charge would remain in tact.

    Well that part of the port is certainly deeper now

  27. Avatar

    Well that's the easiest way to deepen the waterway.

    So many years later and we still have serious reminders. Hopefully our youth realize how we need to try and avoid war as much as we can. Glad nobody was injured.
