Second World War shells rattle museum
The discovery of two wartime shells set off jitters at a museum, amid concerns they may still be live.
Staff at The Rooms museum in St. John’s found the shells as they inventoried artifacts in the Second World War collection.
A member of the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary’s explosive disposal unit was brought in to help remove the shells.
“The RNC officer that came over shook it himself and made us comfortable that there was no immediate concern,” museum director Anne Chafe said Thursday.
The RNC said the force is consulting with the military as to what to do with the bombs.
