SOE / OSS Detonator/Sabotage Trip Wire
Wooden reel/spool approx. 7cm x 3cm diameter. Wound in separate sections with fine metal wire that was used to prepare a booby trap. When fixed between an explosive device and a fixed object the wire could be 'tripped' thus activating the charge.

As used by the Special Operations Executive and OSS. Two spools are available and priced individually. Stop press - 1 roll remaining as of 18/12/14. Stock code S17942.
