Hand Grenade Found at Battle of Britain Memorial

The Battle of Britain memorial in Kent was temporarily closed after the discovery of a Mills Bomb (No. 36 Hand Grenade) during routine maintenance works.

The device, one of the most commonly-found items of Unexploded Ordnance (UXO) across the country, was destroyed in situ by an Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) team.
