Is that a fuse for an artillery round?

 

Some sort of ordnance.

Aerial bomb.

When it drops from the bomb rack the safety wire is pulled out, then the propellor begins to spin in the wind until it arms the bomb. Old school.

Only for a little while then you will have nothing to fidget about.

Hyar’s the antique spinner on my watch chain. Won’t explode. ;)

UB,

 

That fuse may be old school but it's extremely reliable. I never dropped a dud with one of those attached. Electric fuses aren't worth a damn and unreliable.
