A TEAM of Army explosive ordinance disposal experts destroyed a bomb found in Warracknabeal yesterday.
A woman found the Japanese Type 89 high explosive mortar at a Warracknabeal house, which she was clearing out for her mother.
The Defence Explosive Ordnance Services team, from Victoria Barracks in Melbourne, were called to the house by police.
Major Ash Nurick, the Officer Commanding the team, said the bomb had apparently been in the house for years but was still potentially dangerous.
“We deployed from Melbourne on Sunday afternoon and found that while the majority of the actual explosives had been removed from the mortar, the fuse was still present along with some TNT crystals,” he said.
“Those crystals are unstable, so after consultation with the local police commander we decided that the safest option was to carry out a controlled demolition in a Warracknabeal Rifle Range.”
