It makes no sense to go into detail, but the stuff was still everywhere in the 1950s.
Tanks, tracked vehicles were everywhere, we children were warned to look in the woods, we were looking for German assault rifles, none of that was ever particularly funny.
The world war was not an issue, we played "war" with weapons, dug up ammunition, we were very lucky.
Our childhood friend Michael lost an eye from old ammo.
Young Michael was brave, we ran away, Michael handled all that crap, curiosity was formative, ignorant kids...
You can't keep kids away from something like this and that was exactly the theme, adventure, suspense, that's exactly how it was.

In Japan 1950-1954 US military demand for steel planks for temp pavement, girders for bridges, and frames for logistics shelters created a market for the wreckage of the former navy lying derelict in Japans ports and breaker yards.
