    And German ones in Britain. There is a 250kg bomb somewhere in the road I used to live in. A Ju88 was seen to drop 4 bombs but only 3 craters were ever found. Last year there was a fairly major evacuation of the area a few hundred metres from the house I have recently sold when a large bomb was found when a house was being renovated. Now that I have emigrated to France my village has avoided direct involvement in any war since Edward of Woodstock, Prince of Aquitaine, burned down the village in the 14th century.

    Victoria station was evacuated the day before yesterday for what was reported as 'unexploded WW2 ordnance'. It was all over quickly, so probably a false alarm, but finding unexploded ordnance, delivered by the Luftwaffe, is a common occurrence whenever work is undertaken in most British cities, and a few smaller places too.
    Cheers
