Illuminating and WP projectiles. These may also be used to start fires.
Both methods, detonation and burning, may be used for ED of the following items:
Dynamite and black powder.
Fuzes, boosters, and detonators.
DESTRUCTION BY BURNING
To perform ED by burning, you will need combustible material to keep the fire hot and to act as a means of
ignition. The important thing to remember is that the fire must be intense enough to ensure complete burning.
Placement of Combustible Material
Combustible material may be scrap wood, empty boxes, brush, fiber containers, propelling charges, et cetera -
almost anything that will burn. To burn unpalletized ammunition, prepare a bed of combustible material and pile
the boxes of ammunition onto the combustible material. See Figure 1. To burn palletized ammunition, surround
the base of each pallet with a bed of combustible material. If propelling charges are used as a combustible
material, slit the propelling charge and scatter the propellant to increase the burn area. See Figure 2, Page 6.
