Account of Belgian blowing himself up. 😦 Author amused himself blowing up a 3" shrapnel shell.

That's very sad about the Belgian. Apparently he didn't know he should not touch the shell.
I think the author was not really playing by blowing up the German shell. It sounds like he meant it was an interesting problem to solve since it took several tries. I wonder if he blew it up in order to make sure no one else tried to, after what happened to the Belgian the day before.
