Does anyone know what was in V2 rocket Propellant?

Have wanted to know as from reading a story of 141 RTR (buffs) drank the stuff thinking it was alcohol during a party on the night of May 6th 1945.

thanks

Ethyl alcohol and Liquid Oxygen.

I have read of various folks drinking the ethyl...

BTW, ethyl is the type of alcohol found in alcholic beverages, so not nasty like glycol or others.

Probably a little strong and burns a tad, but not lethal.

A good Soviet could put a few litres away and still live ;-)

it said they lived so it thought it couldn't be that lethal. and also they were half cut before they got on to it.

The V-2 also used very high concentrated hydrogenperoxide to power the fuel pumps.
