British Broadcasting at its Best!!!
At 13.37 “My Metal Detector” (Deep Digger Dan) finds a hand grenade, see how carefully he handles it! You then get a lecture explaining how he knows it’s dangerous, but he has guts, and that’s all there is to it.
Get to 1850 and he looks for it, before actually pulling the pin around 20.10!
At 22.11 Dan finds a light shell and handles that very safely too.

Watch 2.00 here: www.youtube.com... Dan respectfully handles another live round here…
9.38 finds a knife
12.15 Criticises luck, Just before discovering a tank!!!
17.06 Eagle swastika found

This guy is a heroic example of Britain’s “Health & Safety” culture, and I believe any future such legislation (aimed at true reform!) should be named after him!!!

If anybody also liked this video’s opening tune its…
“They Might Be Giants: Metal Detector”
www.youtube.com...
This related song “Metal Detector” is quite hilarious…

Further Non-Detonating...
In this separate video you see a WW2 (1905-1943) delayed action bomb, fuse dismantled, so to show how it works…
www.youtube.com...
Although totally obsolete (hardly takes a genius to think how it could be e.g. size reduced) it’s nevertheless an interesting piece of engineering.
Good job people put these video’s up, so people like me safely stay off the local firing range!

How could he do this I dont even...

That’s a really good thought, as to why what he did was wrong.


How could he do this I dont even...
Ill considered fun. Every human has done it! I love the bit where he basically says "now there are some points in life, where you have to grow up and start behaving like an adult, I am not very good at finding those points, but i think this is one of them" and then can't resist temptation later."
For me, that's the ultimate reality TV.

Thankfully...
Given it hasn’t gone-off (despite being thrown, and outdoors for around 70 years) I wouldn’t worry about it too much. It’s far more likely to be set-off by the elements-further decay, or an animal, or hopefully (and most probably) nothing at all.

In any case: He's called out the bomb squad in one of his other videos, so (maybe) he was responsible? (Well... unless you worked for German bomb disposal that day!)

When I was a kid I used to sneak over to the firing ranges to collect the empty shells and clips to make bullet belts. Makes me cringe now when I think back and realise what could have happened. My parentss were always saying to me "Dont go up the ranges" but they were a magnet to me
Occasionally I'd find an unused flair, they were fun

This reminds me of a story my family has told me...

We were living in Athens in the mid 70's (I was a toddler at the time) and my two older brothers used to go to some mountain and find old bullet shells and stuff. Apparently, they went to school one day and were promptly sent home quickly as some kid had brought a live artillery shell he had found on this mountain into class!

Would've made for an interesting show and tell!
