Photo Article from the Greek Hovel - George says this is a World War One bomb

On the steps up to the front door of the Greek Hovel in the side of the bread oven there is a small hole in which a curious, rusting, metal object, pictured below, has always sat. I have always wondered what it is. George the Architect says it is a World War One bomb which would have been dropped from planes, minus of course the fuse and the head. Well maybe, but that begs other questions...

Firstly the hovel was built in 1924. that is after WW1 and was there much use of planes over Greece in the first global war? I doubt it, certainly not in this part of the world. Perhaps this bomb might have been a relic of the Greco-Turkish war of 1919-22, a conflict which did not cover the Hellenes in glory and is thus perhaps not one that George would care to mention? If there are any military historians out there who can shed more light on this, feel free to get in touch. Meanwhile the bomb stays in situe in its resting place at the side of the bread oven.
