    My Grandfather was a ARP Warden during the Blitz and told of this actual event.

    After the war ended , he did a bit of gardening and "found" a incendiary device outside in his garden, up against a wall

    Next morning he carried it to the local Police Station ) .. and they all scattered... complete with howls and screams

    (1st door from the right, of the picture of the old Wavertree Police Station, now a Pub.)

    When I was a baby from 1962, I lived up the side entrance (far left of picture).

    After placing it in a big bucket of water over night, they had some one check it over, it was officially deemed safe.

    It stayed in that bucket for days/weeks.. He only lived down the Road and when he went back one day, he reclaimed it.

    I still have it to this day.. and here it is, recreated 70 years later

    When I walk past this Pub now, I still think of those events of yesteryear.

    Just a simple one minute walk, bringing back memories and thoughts, of events now forgotten in time.
