Rememberance Day – Compressed Air Uses

poppyToday we remember those who gave their lives in Wartime for our freedom. While taking the time to think today about the fallen hero’s I started to wonder about how Compressed Air would have been used over the decades.

So with the use of google I managed to find a Japanese Flamethrower that was powered by Compressed Air back in 1939; torpedos that were used by the Americans were propelled by Compressed Air assisting the engines to get the torpedos to travel upto 40 miles an hour (Ref Inventions of the Great War by Alexander Bond).japanese flamethrower
