We used to find a few blanks on the local MOD exercise areas.
Two bolts and one nut with some match heads between. Tighten carefully and then throw at some hard surface like a wall or floor. Nice bang. When we were told to stand up and empty our pockets I had taken the precaution of hiding mine under the edge of the desk before this order was given. This “ second sight “ has served me well over the intervening 70 years.
I remember that too! How did we survive?
Did you do the putting 6" nails on the railway line, wait for a train to pass and flatten them, then use them as "spear" tips?
Used to put coins on the railway lines, and throw eggs at the locos.
So much nobbery so little time.
we had a favourite pastime also , there was a Dentist at the end of the street , we used to climb over the wall into the back yard and retrieve the half used syringes , numb bums were very common amongst our gang ,
I recall putting bangers ( the firework ones, not suasages) up the handlebars of our bikes and blowing the grips off. Or wedging them between the spokes and riding around waiting for them to go off .
Who are you on about?
