This entry is from our friend Lynda from across the pond in the UK. And I must say, she should get the prize for the craziest entry of all!
You are not going to believe this story!
“Never before, or since, have I ever seen so many men of all ages,shapes and sizes laden with metal detectors, spades, etc. running so fast up hill.
It appeared that one of the detectorists had started digging an excellent signal only to partially uncover a BOMB!!
I just loved the shapes, shadows and the flash of golden sunshine on the corn stubble and having my camera in hand, pointed and clicked . . . . moments later the ray of sunshine was gone.
A Policewoman on the left of the picture stood guard for over 8hrs at the entrance to the field until the Bomb Squad came. After all the expectation of a controlled detonation and more photo opportunities, it turned out to be a WWII bomb with none of the explosives in it!
The finder of the bomb is fifth head from the right and John, honorary male member of the CWPC, is third from the right.”
