    Today I found a German Nebelwerfer missile type, of course, empty safe.
    And so now rummaging in the network and it is probably the type of 7,3 cm Propaganda Werfer 41.
    Are they to think?

    Nice find. Did you find it with a metal detector?

    You say your Grandad was terrified by them ?

    With good cause..! ..... these "wailing willys", as we called them in Sicily, made the most mournful of noise everytime they were fired followed by crash after crash as the shells landed.

    I write as someone who still vividly remembers the bastards !

    In reading the AARs of my great uncle's Tank Destroyer Battalion, there were several mentions of knocking out nebelwerfers. After having watched that video, I can imagine that they took great pleasure in blowing those things to kingdom come.
