King Edward Mine museum - Holman projector
This was a WWII anti-aircraft mortar that used compressed air (MkI) or steam (Mks II and III) to fire a mills bomb. It was used primarily by the navy and about 4,500 were made by Holman Bros of Camborne in 1940-1 until better ordnance superseded the device. I do not know if this was a compressed air or steam version but thought it was of sufficient interest to be a worth a photograph whatever.
