Re: another sword attack..

... their shed - seems they were left over after 1916 and dumped in a hole and covered in concrete in case they were found in possession. They were in pretty good nick, though likely weren't about to fire, as the box wasn't 100% waterproof. His wife convinced him to contact the police to see what he ...
