    Ammunition dangers

    It was closed because of all the idiots that lifted shell cases and then dumped the cordite on the slip or beach. I seem to recall local plod and bomb disposal getting seriously pissed off with being called out every weekend

    Usual story. A few idiots ruining things for everyone else.

    What goes around, comes around I can remember in the late 1940s we young 'uns all Army brats in Larkhill, Salisbury Plain found a number of 303 bullets. We emptied them out for the cordite, then went home and chucked it all on the coal fire while our parents were out. No 'elf and safety then :-)

    Mary T tells me that a Vice Pres of the BSAC, one Tony Marshall has indeed indexed the BSAC library.

    It's a bit saddening looking back, thinking of the resources and time BSAC had back then to dedicate to stuff like this - I can't imagine that ever happening now. It's a shame this information that they went to so much trouble to compile is just sitting though. I'd like to see BSAC make some effort to make the information available, even if it's literally just creating digitised copies of the original material as PDFs or Epub files or something like that. A lot the information is likely out of date or irrelevent now, but if nothing else then it's of historical interest - and at least of it probably still is genuinely useful.
