Tell us what it was and we can wildly speculate until an expert comes along  ;)

In a nutshell.......What as puzzling me was that with 3 of the DAB radios we've got, the signal. completely disappeared.
(This happens for a minute or two, every so often, but pretty rarely....But this,  was for a couple of hours.)

A fourth DAB we've got was fine during this time.....Eh ? :o

Before anyone asks  ;)......I don't have all 4 radios on at once....I was just going round testing everything.....(and they ALL work fine now.)

Cheers - Puzzled of Wales. :-\

Ah, that one's easy to answer - it's just them checking up on you  :-$

Did you check the skies? Any shadowy saucer like objects in the vicinity? If not then it's likely either ghosties or gremlins.

Phil would think that about any passing Boing or Airbus

You could have something there.

I think the little stereo on the desk is haunted......It's certainly got a mind of its own....Gets stuck on a particular station...Simply will not change....THEN changes without me doing anything........Overnight. :o :o :o :-SS :-SS :-SS

I'll call Mulder and Scully. ;)

I'm sad that the buzz of her being the next Bond seems groundless. It might have been real fun.
I have not the pleasure of understanding you. Of what are you talking?

What does 'posting' a grenade mean ?

Simply hurling it away, or something like dropping it into a heavily padded receptacle which absorbs the blast ?

There's an article on the BBC news site this morning that's 'inspired' this query.

Cheers - Phil :-\

It is analogus to posting a letter, grenades are posted into pill boxes or thgrough windows. Hate the things - one of our female cadets dropped one in a throwing bay, fortuneatly she and the DS got out.

Thanks, Ian.  :)

I must admit that my other thought as far as a 'postal' reference was concerned, was that it might have been a 'return to sender'  if you chucked it straight back.

Don't think I'd fancy doing THAT.....in the slightest !.....(Gives me the shivers, just imagining it.) X_X

Mills  bombs had 3 or 7 sec fuzes, DO NOT pick it and throw back hit the deck with your boots pointing at it. A good solid DMS should get most of the splinters.

"A heavily padded receptacle" like this?   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5F4xjJFmUYI

That obviously wasn't padded enough inside !! :o :o :o :o

"You were only supposed to blow the bloody doors off."

Sodding heck ! :o :o :o

I've seen short clips of the bomb disposal squad blowing up old mortar shells that have been 'dug up' in fields.
They appear to surround the mortar with a number of 'smallish' sandbags and then detonate their own charge.

Compared to the safe in the clip that John has linked to.... those bangs look fairly innocuous.
Maybe the explosive charge in the mortars has deteriorated or 'leaked out' ??
