YES BOMBS ARE AMMUNITION - ask any ordnance supply officer.
The most famous bomber pilot of all time, General Paul Tibbets pilot of the Enola Gay , my old pal and fellow Ohioan passed away last week at his home at 92 year of age. The photo is a souvenir A-bomb made by the First Ordnance Squadron , Tinian Island ( where the Enola Gay left for Hiroshima ) and given to Paul upon his return. The First Ordnance handled the A-bombs for both flights.
The mini-A- bomb is made from Japanese artillery fuzes with silver wings.
The background is a photo of the device used to arm the A-bomb. The photo is signed by the pilots of both missions.
