About a month ago, I posted a blog that mentioned a World War 2 torpedo which had been found on the sea bed in Scapa Flow.
This week, a team from the Royal Navy were on hand to make the torpedo safe and recover any fragments for posterity.
Whilst not at home to witness the event, which is a source of great disappointment as I'm sure that it would have been visible from Tense Towers, I was at least able to watch footage of the 'making safe procedure' later in the day.
It made it to the BBC here, the weekly paper's website here and the orkney.com website here.
