Bombs And Bullets
Plymouth they used to say, was the cradle of the Royal Navy,and since before Napoleonic times, rings of fortifications were built around the coast to protect the Navy and its Dockyard. All of these forts practiced fired into the sea, and during the two World Wars, thousands of tons of ammunition, in the shape of bombs and bullets, were dropped, fired, or dumped onto the sea bed.
If you dive around Plymouth it is impossible to avoid seeing these pieces of ordinance, even if you do not immediately recognize what they are. Many are still lethal and should not be interfered with .
I am gratefull to Dave 'Bomber' Page, seen here examining a lead covered Armstrong shell, for all the research and photo's that he provided for this section. 'Thanks Dave'.
