A bomb scare !

Hertfordshire Mercury, 3rd October 1914


When opening the doors of the Baptist Chapel in Bishop’s Stortford on the Sunday evening, the caretaker, Phillips, found a parcel under the table in the entrance hall.  He called a policemen who, on opening it, found it to contain a shell.  It was taken to the Police Station and enquiries were made.  It was ascertained that a Sunday School teacher had used it at a children’s service as an object lesson!
