British SOE/OSS No. 3 Mk I Booby Trap Device – Item 85380

Scarce SOE issue British Mk I No 3 delay detonator device. Good overall condition with minor pitting to metal where has been buried at one time but a rare item of SOE sabotage equipment.

Note:   Switch Number 3 Mark 1 – Release Switch. Placed inside or under something, this switch operated in reverse to the Pressure switch. When a weight was removed from it, or the closed part of the device released, for example the opening of a tin, this triggered the explosives connected to it. Often this was used by the army for booby traps.
