Hi Sturm

They look like British Royal Navy Hedgehog spigot motor bombs. I know they were tested on various armoured vehicles for a mine clearing. Could these be static ones in a similar role.

Hi Clive

Ummhhh....The general shape of the projectiles seems quite similar to Hedgehog spigot mortar bombs but the projectiles of my photo seem quite smaller

See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hedgehog_ ... mortar.jpg

Thanks you very much for your help, Grzesio. :wink:
According to net information these rockets were developed from Mousetrap anti-submarine rocket, so Clive was not too wrong either.... :)
