Yes,I recorded the series when it was shown a while back. Then bought the book! Fascinating.

As you rightly say, it was a cat and mouse game. Fritz made another type of fuse with nasty surprise underneath it, then we had to figure out how to disarm it.

I'm sure we were the same, but the variety of German bomb fuses and the construction of them was fantastic. The SD.2 (Butterfly Bomb) is a work of art.

A lot of the devices to "stop the clock" that we used were "Heath Robinson" in the extreme - but they worked!

A lot of VERY brave B.D. officers lost their lives in the early days. Often unsung heroes.
