Found this in the news today. German V2 Rocket found in Harwich harbour. Only 40 miles away from me. Amazing that no ships had sailed into it, or that no one had spotted it before.
"A German V2 rocket from World War II has been found nose down in the mud flats at Harwich Harbour.
Royal Navy divers said it was buried vertically with about 1.5m (5ft) of its tail exposed at low tide.
Bomb disposal teams will look at the rocket at low tide on Friday as they try to work out how much more is buried and if it is still dangerous.
The discovery of the rocket was reported to Essex Police by a local sailing club.
A Royal Navy diving team arrived at the site on Wednesday evening but could not get near it until Thursday morning.
At low tide, the team said, it was about 200m (656ft) from the shore near Harwich Yacht Club." from the BBC website.
