A Mosquito drops a 'Highball' aimed at HMS Malaya during tests of the weapon in Loch Striven. Developed from the Dambusters bouncing bomb 618 sqn trained with it and eventually were deployed to the Far East. The Bomb was never used in anger, and a further developement 'Baseball' ( a similar weapon to be launched from MTBs) was canceled with the end of the war
