SOLD

Firex Fire Extinguisher manufactured by L.R. Laboratories Ltd., London.  A wax sealed spherical blue glass bottle containing some kind of fluid.  Directions suggest to 'hurl the Firex Grenade into the heart of the fire with sufficient force to shatter the glass container'.  The bottle remains sealed and has some contents.  The label on it states 'do not use on incendiary bombs.  These should be disposed of with rake, scoop and sand pail (See A.R.P. instructions) and Firex used to extinguish the resulting fires'.  It comes in the original card box.  This has some pieces missing and is rather tatty.  An interesting Home Front item.  Stock code M27445.
