    Luftmine

    Came across this nice picture on the internet and would like to share it.
    Perhaps one of our Brittisch members can have a look at that site if it still is there.
    An unexploded parachute mine sits in a garden on Score Lane Childwall, 28 November 1940.
    Any Live or Dug ordnance shown by me has been disposed of by military EOD personnel .

    Score Lane is still there, Liverpool (L16 6AN), but it's quite a long lane and nobody seems to know the actual house number..

    I'd love to own the Green silk Parachute from one of these beasts... All twenty seven feet of it
