Not to mention that late-war LMB casings were made of what amounted to posh cardboard.The bombs aren’t really the problem, ferrous casings make them easy to find, it’s the 750kg German aluminium mines that cause us problems. For the ferrous stuff we just use magnetometers stand alone or in arrays. For the aluminium stuff we have had to change the game completely and use the same systems that are used to map the sub-seabed and find oil/gas.
That looks like a development of the pipe tracker we used along with profilers. Makes sense I suppose. It was over 20 years ago.
The Pangeo rig is acoustic. The pipetracker I am used to is basically a giant beachcomber's metal detector.That looks like a development of the pipe tracker we used along with profilers. Makes sense I suppose. It was over 20 years ago.
Not really interested in anything deeper than 3m below bottom for trenching the transmission cables. I imagine you need something a bit more "penetrating" where you want to bang the piles in, mind.It’s not a lot more than an expensive pipe tracker, fine for “shallow” targets.
Chain her to the tractor. Best worse case is they nick the tractor and don't bring any bolt cutters with them to cut the chain.Well this is beyond bone, this is plain stupidity.
One of my tractors is very old ,in good condition and very collectable. I am always asked if I want to sell it ,
I regard it as a very tidy bit of cash should it be needed, there have been a couple of attempts to steal it.
Mrs WW has been at sometime in the past been involved in security type stuff saving us from the naughty folk that wish to do us harm, and opsec / persec aware.
Then why the fuckty **** does she join a face book thing and then tell some complete stranger the details of this tractor , AND WHERE WE ******* WELL ARE !
I am a tad annoyed
Wasn't the deep trench between Northern Ireland and Scotland where Boris wants to build his bridge also used as a dumping ground post-WWII? That would be a tricky clearance job I would think.Mines, bombs, rockets, shells, small arms ammo - the coastal waters of northern Europe are littered with the stuff.
Mate tell me about it. We have damp issues in the bathroom. I open the Windows to get a bit of a draft. Return to find the windows shut as she doesn't want them open as it may get dusty or insects may get in (we live in Dubai). Then proceed to moan about the damp.And kids, that and leaving doors open in winter and closing them in summer.
