Old Inert Military Bomb WW1 First World War Stokes Mortar 3 Inch As Used By Kiwi Anti-aircraft Anti Aircraft / Anti Infantry


Reff: Silver 329


Measures: 36.5 cm long.

The Stokes mortar remained in service into the Second World War, when it was superseded by the Ordnance ML 3 inch mortar, and some remained in use by New Zealand forces until after the Second World War.

The 3-inch trench mortar is a smooth-bore, muzzle-loading weapon for high angles of fire.

As well as receiving a knighthood for inventing the modern mortar, Stokes was given several forms of monetary reward by the Ministry of Munitions for his invention.
