    tips for discovering abandoned ordnance

    Bazooka rocket left for recycling


    Bomb disposal experts were called in after a rocket was found at a recycling centre in Devon.
    The discovery was made by staff at the Knowle Hill centre in Salterton Road, Exmouth, on Tuesday afternoon.
    Bomb disposal officers from Plymouth said the device was a bazooka rocket, but it was a "dud" practice round.
    The rocket, which was about 3.5in (9cm)long, was disposed of by the ordnance team. It is not known who left the device at the recycling centre.

    Paul,

    If I get anymore, I will give you a ring.....We gave them away to the EOD School in Kent and a Unit... on the North Humber coast. Spotter, same place as the last one when when you were there...
