    Yes those are great pics.

    Perhaps they let life carry on as normal and the general public have a squiz after the fuze had been removed from the bomb.

    I'll second that!....
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    These days they evacuate an entire suburb if so much as a grenade is found.

    Any idea where in Portsmouth it was? It'd be great to get some now and then pics if the surrounding buildings still survive. No street names visible on any pics?? Cheers, Tom

    Good idea, might be able to pick something up and then check out google streetview! Alternatively, find a local history society forum and post it on there - some local might be able to identify the place. Cheers, Tom
