This is the blog of Ronald Bartels that wanders on and off the subject of problem management (that is how it started), but it is best described by Ray who says this is Daddy's thoughts! Like the best music is from the Eighties and a wee dram helps in solving most inconveniences.
Bouncing bomb - one of WWII's most fascinating weapons - the Awesome World of Things
During the Second World War Barnes Wallis devised a surface torpedo that
was able to avoid underwater defenses by bouncing across water. This
eventually resulted in a highly successful bombing raid using Lancaster
bombers and lead by the pilot Guy Gibson against Germany’s industrial
areas where dams were targeted and destroyed. One of the reasons the
bouncing bomb was so successful is it would rest right up against the
wall of the dam and then explode at the desired depth. A traditional
bomb would never be able to have that sort of accuracy.
