Does anyone have anything on Bootleg?

I understand it was a proposal for a rocket powered torpedo.

'BOOTLEG was a single-shot weapon. The rocket propellant was pressed into the hull and a
central exhaust core was then machined out. Vickers set about modifying the three BOOTLEG
vehicles to take replaceable rocket charges so that each test torpedo could be run many times. '
