Description When Peace Comes Along by Heath Robinson, WW1
Details

Old War Balloons for Drawing Corks at Birthday Parties. One of a series of ideas suggested by William Heath Robinson for re-purposing redundant weapons and war-related machinery after the end of the war. In this case, an old sausage observation balloon is used, perhaps rather unnecessarily, to uncork champagne bottles.
