FIL must have been about 17 when the war ended. Last weekend, Zero Alpha was talking to him on the phone about a great+ grandfather she'd found. He changed the subject and started talking to her about, late in the war, finding an unexploded incendiary bomb after a raid. Being a teenager of the 40s, he promptly took it apart (after all, they were built to cause damage, not to kill bomb-disposers). I hasten to point out that well into his 80s he hasn't changed. Inside the bomb, he found a piece of stiff paper or card, covered with some sort of foreign, probably Cyrillic writing on it, wedged in the mechanism. He took the card to the police and never heard a dicky more about it. Seventy years on, it occurs to him to wonder whether there might have been a message from a slave labourer on it, or whether they just used anything they could find to render U/S the munitions they were forced to build. Zero Alpha issued an order that I ask the question here. Anyone got any thoughts? (Other than, "Wasn't your FIL a typical ******** teenager?"
