Wow, filled with inflammable liquid, I didn't even know that they had bloody hand grenades back that far. Shock

This will set the cat amongst the pigeons for sure. Archaeologists have found evidence of 9,000 year old stone buildings on Rosemary Island in Australia North West. This dating goes back to the end of the last ice age and was maintained throughout the ice age. Shock The say that the Island at the time would have actually been on the coast of Australia, part of the mainland. Very interesting indeed. Idea

Reminds me of that stirring hymn -

Onward Christian soldiers
Marching as to war
With the cross of Jesus
Going on before

The local Salvation Army hall was just down at the end of our street and I used to love listening to their singing and their bands and tambourines rocking out the music.

I remember that too PK. I didn't think to much about it then, but now, it would be great to hear again.
