Use of Practice Bombs Prohibited
Because their manufacture calls for the use of scarce materials, including magnesium and metal containers, the production and distribution of incendiary bombs for use as “demonstrators” by civilian groups is prohibited by Limitation Order L-115, issued on May 7 by the War Production Board. Only permitted exceptions are to fill orders authorized in writing by the Army or Navy.
All persons who have manufactured incendiary bombs or similar devices, for demonstration purposes, except for, or under the authorization of, the Army or Navy, since September 1, 1941, must immediately report quantities and current inventories to the W. P. B. on Form PD-449.
In addition to stopping production of incendiary bombs, the order prohibits all persons from selling, purchasing, delivering or accepting them.
