    At a workshop producing sticky bombs somewhere in Britain, the glass flasks which will form the main body of the bombs are gauged for uniformity of thickness.

    A close-up view showing knitted woollen jackets being fitted the glass flasks of sticky bombs at a factory workshop, somewhere in Britain. The jackets are fastened by means of a drawstring around the neck of the flask. The woollen jackets will soon be coated with adhesive to enable them to stick to their target before detonation.

    Mrs A Bowker (left) and Mrs Booth-Jones pack sticky bombs, already in their protective casings, into small cases at a factory somewhere in Britain. The handles are packed around the sides of these cases, which are then sent off to a filling factory for the explosives to be added.
