It's interesting(ish) to learn the finer points about making cordite, but wouldn't you just love to be a member of the "Explosives Committee"?

Can you imagine, that still today over 30 tons of unexploded ammo is gathered

every year from Flanders' fields; 92 years after the end of the war?

The farmers deposit shells and granades they find at the nearest country road,

where the army specialists collect them.
