Anti-airship incendiary

In addition to anti-airship operations conducted by the Royal Flying Corps and Royal Naval Air Service (flights, balloon aprons and artillery) this anti-airship incendiary device was developed by the Royal Laboratory, Woolwich. The spikes were intended to pierce and lodge in the airship's fabric covering and gas bags.
