A MOURNFUL MELODY
A DUD DOOD IT AGAIN

While strollin’ thru the woods one day in the merry, merry month of May
I was taken by surprise when an object met my eyes
and then what ya know! A sooveneer.
Now let me see – I could make a nice lamp or –hm-mm
KA-POW!
And all this happened while strolling thru the woods one day.

Note: A dud is any part of an unexploded projectile.

A dud is not necessarily a complete shell. Often only the fuze is found. Use extreme caution when you find an object resembling any part of a shell.

Mark its location, report it, and LEAVE IT ALONE!

AND WATCH OUT FOR BOOBY TRAPS!
