yes mate worked that one out hencethe bit about the date!
Used to be on the RLC EOD team at Shorncliffe. Time Team were doing a live special from a site just outside Canterbury, looking for buried medieval tile ovens using ground radar thingies. They found an 'anomoly' which could have been an oven, but was also not far from the line of a stick of German WW2 bombs - just where there was a gap in the stick. They asked for some advice and, being the nearest EOD asset we rocked up. They had some top fit birds doing support stuff and a fantastic mobile canteen, but the whole experience was ruined by the presence of lots of horrible sweaty bearded socks-and-sandal wearing freaks.

Watched the programme live that sunday when they uncovered a big old tile oven. Was chuffed to bits. Had it been an aircraft bomb I would have had to task RE as thats their bag. And that really goes against the grain. ;) :)
