Souvenir Found To Have Live Signal Cartridge

Whitman, Florida The grandson of a Navy veteran cleaning out a garage owned by the family came across an old souvenir his father brought home from his time in the Navy -- a miniature practice bomb. The practice bomb had been in the home for nearly 80 years tucked away in a garage.

The grandson who found the device reported seeing a charge in the tail fin assembly of the bomb. He took a picture of the device on his phone and showed it to the police at the station.


The police notified the local bomb squad who responded and took custody of the miniature practice bomb for off-site disposal.

The bomb appears to be an AN-M 43 miniature practice bomb which contains a AN-MK 4 signal (a 10 gauge shotgun shell).
