Polaris Missile
on show for all to see, in the Imperial War Museum, London

Polaris

Here's a British Royal Navy Polaris missile among many other interesting exhibits at the Imperial War Museum, London. You can see for yourself the scale of the equipment, in relation to people in the bottom right of the picture. These military exhibits are kept indoors in a huge hall, and the Polaris missile is three or four storeys high even in comparison to the backdrop. Submarines must be quite big.

In case you're wondering, there is no blue touch-paper underneath!

If you're interested in war memorabilia, you may like to visit the Imperial War Museum Shop where there's a remarkable collection of art available online.
