    Default More ordnance disposed of in Jersey, Channel Islands!!

    Another week where our local bomb disposal officer was called out to dispose of some more ordnance. This time it was 4 3.7cm shell heads, again found at the low water mark in Grouvile Bay by a local metal detectorist out looking for cannon balls. The heads were buried with the charge attached and set off from further up the beach. After the event there was a neat little crater and a few bits of shrapnel. Another disposal job carried out perfectly and without problem.
    All the best from Jersey,
