The police explosives unit responded, and discovered it was an MK II, which was the standard issue anti-personnel grenade used in the Second World War.

Police turned the grenade over to the military, which examined it and deemed it to be a practice grenade used for training.

Investigators tracked down the previous homeowners, who had lived at that address for 30 years, Anderson said.

"They confirmed they did not bury a practice grenade in the yard," he said – which would seem to signify it had been lying there undiscovered for decades.

The grenade was later destroyed, he said.
