Live WW1 Ammunition Polished By 85 Year Old Woman

Posted on August 24, 2018

June Hill, 85, from Somerset, was offered the anti-aircraft rounds for an exhibition about World War One. She was “thrilled” with the buffed shells and put them away in a drawer. But they were later destroyed by the Army’s Bomb Disposal team, leaving Mrs Hill “disappointed” at a lack of a centrepiece for her exhibition. “I was organising an event at Berrow Village Hall for the Berrow and Brean Residents Association World War One exhibition,” she said. “After calling round local members to ask if they had something we could display, a friend offered two shells from their garage.”
