Hand grenade found in potatoes

Tuesday 13 November 2012

A World War II hand grenade was found in a load of potatoes at a potato processing plant in Dronten on Tuesday.

The grenade was clearly recognisable because its pin was still intact.

According to the Nos, it is a standard fragmentation grenade used by Americans during the Second World War and known as a pineapple.

It is now in the hands of the bomb disposal service.

Dronten is in the Flevopolder - a large area of reclaimed land east of Amsterdam - where dozens of bombs, bullets and grenades from the war period are found every year.
