Welcome to Felixstowe Scribblers

The elusive unexploded bomb still lays somewhere on the sea floor some two miles out at from the Felixstowe shoreline. Despite the Royal Naval staff knowing the GPS location, their divers have still to find the bomb. With zero visibility it means a virtual finger tip search or a trawl of the seabed to find it.

and that when the bomb is found and detonated, they will be able to see a spout of water estimated to be some 200 feet in the air. The imminent danger was removed when the bomb was towed out to sea and residents are assured of their safety.

Here in Suffolk we have a well known phrase - "Cor blast me, boy!" - which seems an appropriate invitation from the bomb to the navy.
