Download PDF for this date

Two live hand grenades found in Victoria Station this morning may figure in an investigation of reports that Arab sympathizers are smuggling explosives into London for possible sabotage, police said today. The grenades were discovered in a flight bag during a routine check of the luggage office at the railway depot. The grenades were of Russian make. Five grenades were found in a suitcase at Victoria Station last Friday.
