Earlier this afternoon a German 75mm HE head which had been found by a metal detectorist on the beach in Grouville Jersey was safely detonated at the low water mark by the Jersey Bomb Disposal Officer. It is believed that the head was fired from a bunker which once stood on Gorey Harbour. The bunker was demolished years ago to make more room for parking.
A few pieces of shrapnel we picked up after the event with 2 eagle and swastika's to be clearly seen to the base of the head.
All the best from Jersey.
