    I have completed writing my storey of the gravel mine, but it is too large to post here. So if you PM me with your email address I'll send you a copy. In the report is information from interviews of engineers who worked on the mines, pilots who dropped them, and info I have collected from various sources to include what companies were involved in engineering, R&D, manufacture etc.

    Bottom line the button bomblet were the one seen in a picture withthe title seed mines, they didn't work becasue they couldn;t be spread well and weren't large enough for some sensors to hear when they went off. The XM 40 was its replacement.

    I'm still collecting information and waiting for 2 FOIA requests to be answred
    any live or dug ordnance shown in my posts was dealt with by EOD personell
