A friend of mine gave me two photos and asked if they were:

A - a naval mine

B - part of a aerial bomb

Im pretty sure that object B was a bomb, but that flowerpot doesnt look like a mine.

Help me guys : )

Item A looks like a cast metal buoy thats been cut in half.

Item B I have no idea, the thickness of the wall suggests a bomb casing but then I would expect the stabilizing wings to be more substantial. The equipment drop pods I have seen had quite flimsy wings, but the body were made of thin sheet metal as they were disposable. So, no idea.

Areal boms usually get way thinner at the end with the wings attached to the sides, or the rear.

That thing is propably only a joke trashbin.


Edit: I actually found a british bomb, that has a comparable design - with the removed ring.
