Default Identifying projectiles......

The following pictures were sent to me by a young chap living in the Eastern rural part of Ottawa.....Navan area.

One seems like a prototype made out of wood for a wind tunnel tests such as I have seen before while working at NRC.....maybe a wing tip tank or belly tank... about 35 inches long, looks like hard maple....

The second is steel, very heavy and has a hole running through the center....about 12 inches long.....no markings or threaded plugs......

Could it be the nose portion of a practice bomb dropped in the Mer Blue area during training in WW II. May have had sheet metal tail fins at one point.

Both items have puzzled its owner for over 40 years and discovered on unused farm land in the area..... maybe NCC green belt area which includes or are adjacent to the Mer Blue swampy area....... now officially referred to as " protected wetland" but it is still a swamp.

Having trouble with the pictures.....

I have no idea what we would be looking at but you could also post the pictures on BOCN - British Ordnance Collectors Network. The people that inhabit that site are extremely knowledgeable.
