There was a WWII bomb found where I lived in Germany. I shopped and ate in those restaurants many times. I mean lived, yes right there  a couple short blocks.

A lot!
The UXB lads were very busy in London when I was growing up.
They are still finding them.
When you think of the speed they come down and the weight it’s not surprising.
The strangest ones were the old 2kg incindery bombs many folks in London put on their mantles as a decoration not knowing what they had.
I knew one of the lads on the UXB teams. A nice chap but a bit odd :o
