Rejected by the Inventions Board IX - Heath Robinson
The Pilsener Pump for tapping the enemy's beer; another hilariously convoluted contraption to foil the enemy during World War I from William Heath Robinson.

Measures for foiling troop carriers by G. H. Davis
Meeting the threat of airborne invasion in Britain during the Second World War: suggested measures for foiling German troop carriers.

These drawings show their capabilities, and suggest a number of ways by which they can be hindered or stopped.
