PROPAGANDA LEAFLETS OF THE SECOND WORLD WAR ....


FALLING FROM THE SKY

Allied static line 'quick release leaflet pack' for dropping leaflets

A better method of dropping leafets from an airplane

Because of the troubles with the handdropping of leaflets, later on in 1943, the box method was used. A special box filled with leaflets was dropped from the plane. The cover of the box was attached to the plane by a static line. The idea was that the box could drop away from the plane before the cable pulled the lid of the box.

Later on an even more effective way was found. The so-called Monroe bomb was taken into service.
