HomeFUZES and IGNITERSGermany


Comment from Martin:
"if my memory is right, the 2 ampules in the glassheadfuze contained in 1 ampule an amalgam of liquid Potassium and Natrium metal. The second ampule contained Ethylnitrate. When these contact each other after the ampules get crushed the explosive flash would ignite a flashdetonator below".


I have no other specific information on this chemical igniter, who manufactured them?
Please
email me if you can help.
