    Another addition to my areas of expertise

    One of the teachers just brought me a socking great WWII machine gun shell to see if I thought it was safe. The detonator cap had been removed and there was no cordite in it, so I said as long as nobody dropped it on their foot!!!

    What surprised me most was that when I took it apart I noticed it was a tracer bullet. Nobody I have asked in school, including the male teacher involved who is approaching 60, knew what a tracer actually was.

    Um, even though it's deactivated and from WW2 it might be illegal to have it in your possesion.......!

    You could have just said "Excuse me" then ran past them out and off the premises leaving them to draw their own conclusions
