Thermite in the computer room

When my father was posted to Vietnam during the late 1960's, his computer room contained a cabinet full of thermite grenades. If the base was likely to be overrun by the enemy, the computing staff was instructed put grenades on top of the computers and disk drive packs, pull the pins, and run like hell.
