I believe it was the Gibson Girl rescue radio and it had a canister of
"Calcium Hydride". Someone mentioned lithum hydride. If I remember
correctly, lithium hydride is almost explosive with water and calcium
hydride while getting really hot was controllable. I filled a couple
ballons from the canisters when I was in sea survival school many many
years ago, and they really do get hot!!; even sitting in the ocean. The
result is a mess of calcium hydroxide, probably not too good to leave
