On the 4th March 2015 a Japanese 240mm shell was found during construction works. These rounds weigh in the region of 200Kg and pose a significant threat; their original purpose was to take out concrete positions, such as pillboxes. This particular item was located approximately 20meteres from the main electrical cable supplying power to a large section of the island and in close proximity to a gas main. The location and condition of the round made it impossible to move. It has become a standard practice for us to use BlastSax in at least the two initial layers (before then applying additional layers of sandbags) when bagging items of ordnance. In this particular case the main reason was to reduce fragmentation (in the event of a high order) and act as an effective tamp for the explosive charges - when on hillsides during the dry winters here we have also found that the layers significantly reduce the chances of hill fires. A series of charges were used to crack the shell casing, each time using the same bagging method. The operation ended after three days with a final controlled (albeit, rather spectacular) detonation of the remaining portion with no damage to either the power cabling or gas main resulting. I shall view your MK IV BlastSax video with interest,- your current product is now standard issue to all teams in the Bureau.
