Once again a metal detectorist has discovered a mortar bomb on a beach here in Jersey. It was called in and our bomb disposal officer attended the scene. The mortar was a French 81mm (24/31 Modp.r. 1916.... I think). A charge was attached to the bomb and it was safely detonated. The tail fin and nose fuse were found in the bottom of the crater. It just goes to show you can never tell whats under your feet. In all cases if you find something that might be ordnance call the Police who will call out the BDO, don't go taking it home.
All the best from Jersey,
