    No more sending by Royal Mail

    OK everyone,
    after what's happened to me at work today over sending INERT ordnance to Richard B,
    I will no longer send anything ordnance related by RM.

    Work didn't take too kindly to a policeman coming to interview me!

    Cheers,
    Andy

    Intrigued now Andy!
    When the Israeli grenade was delivered to me, that was by RM. A notice adorned the package stating 'Not By Air' a smaller sticker had details of the contents and that simply said 'item Description: Hand Grenade de-act' The person delivering it did give me a strange look while waiting for me to sign.
    No one has knocked on the door about it yet though!

    Andy thats unlucky,but you can understand why they have to be carefull about stuff in the post these days,I also learned my lesson the hard way,My fault poorly packaged and no labeling of contents,didnt even put sender adress on it,,,wife spent most of the day liasing between me (was away working) and the CID who traced me through the destination adress

    Any Live or Dug ordnance shown by me has been disposed of by military EOD personnel .

    Hi Tony,

    I would say nothing!
    I think the main reason my parcel was stopped was because it was sent by special delivery,as a high number of these are x-rayed,why I don't know!!

    Cheers,
    Andy

    Cheers Andy,thats probably the best bet,ive sent inert stuff 40 or 50 times and had no trouble.I think it reinforces the point that you should not mess with anything which is not inert,and definitely not have it in your collection.Plus its legal to own(for now),Many thanks.

    So is it wise then to put a note in every package saying `Inert` and your own address?:huh:

    cheers
