Hello all Following on from the thread on here about the Kiel canal accident, can anyone shed any light on an incident on the island of Jersey in the Seventies in which a number of men drowned during a series of displays landing on/near a beach in Jersey? I was on holiday there at the time, and remember watching the displays well. One of my enduring memories of my childhood was standing in the back of (I think) a Landrover firing a belt of blank through a tripod mounted GPMG. My nephew still has the belt and cases I was allowed to collect out the back of the rover! Can anyone remember this, or shed anymore light on it? I only remember the details from my Dad, I wasn't very old, and suppose my parents kept the details quiet to not spoil the holiday.
