You said sun tan lotion.

What a bombshell with nice rockets on a beach may look like.

I have to say, I hate reading Daily Mail articles. The same information is repeated three or four times, usually verbatim, in the text itself and in the image captions.

As long as they knew where their towel was, they should have been able to get the rest from any passing strag.

I love the sign "Danger: unexploded ordinance. It may explode and kill you'

Who would have thought that ordinance, which is design to explode and kill people, may explode and kill people.

They were so uptight about those signs they misspelled "defense."

You see here kids, don't pick up these bombs, like I'm doing here, because I'm a professional. And for God's sake don't hit them on these rocks, like thi..

An awful lot of these things look exactly like BDU-33 practice bombs.
 
2012-07-23 06:59:17 PM  
Most of the devices were dummy rounds used for bombing practice but contain enough explosives to cause terrible injuries
That makes them not dummies. Now we know there are dummies around here somewhere, so let's figure out where they are - can someone point to the dummies in this story?
 
2012-07-23 07:01:59 PM  
Do you realise Britain now spends more on national defense than it does on silly walks?
 
2012-07-23 07:08:26 PM  
After WWII Britain piled up all its unused bombs and blew up the German island of Heligoland. They blew up an island. Apparently it's the biggest man made non-nuclear explosion in history - just for a laugh. British tourists on Heligoland are frowned upon.

Actually in my experieince some dummy munitions have some explosives in it for marking or simulation. For example Training Grenades which can be considered dummies can be fitted with fused caps for effect.

Bombing practice rounds have a teeny bit of explosive in them so you can see where they hit.
 
2012-07-23 07:16:31 PM  
So the RAF fired these rockets at their own beaches, and didn't bother to pick them up?

I dunno what the rest of you think, but leaving unexploded ordinance lying around your own country doesn't strike me as the smartest thing to do.

One of the saddest/strangest stories of World War II was a family of the English nobility that lost its heir and his sister in one morning.

Their family had owned the land since I guess 1066 or so. It was along the Channel coast. For centuries the family had, after holiday meals, walked along their beach. This year when they followed family tradition they walked into a mine field and blew themselves to bits.

Practice rounds still contain a charge to mark where they hit. It's nothing compared to a live round but it's still not something you want going off in your hands.

I'm curious. Has anyone ever been hurt by one of these old munitions? There is an island near me what was also used for target practice but to my knowledge no one has ever been hurt or even in danger from stepping on, playing with, or otherwise messing with this old crap in the last 50 years. No one has ever gone off accidentally and people have done some "dumb" shiat with it.

Fort Ord in CA has a similar problem.
