    When a bomb/ shell does not explode, then you have to wait 30 minutes, before the next procedure begins.

    A very unfortunate incident, but it can happen.

    Sad.

    A C of I will establish the cause.

    All bombs of the same LOT will possibly be segregated, inspected by MARS and then declared serviceable/ UNSV.
