20mm high explosive. Extremely sensitive to impact. Very dangerous.

Whoever has it, give them a lecture please. If you don't know what it is, leave the damn thing alone! Enough power in that to remove a hand, or quite possibly a life.
Men can only ever do one thing at a time so, whatever it is you want me for, SOD OFF ! I am doing THIS !

Lots of videos of WW2 relics being recovered on my channel! Go view it!

It is not a detecting find; his kid rooted it up in the garden.

Leave it be in the garden, and call 101 for the EOD to pick up. Not the type of thing to 'drop off' at the Cop shop in a jiffy bag. ::g
