    S.Mines found in Chouet Quarry Guernsey 1991 these were dumped after minefield clearance in the islands ,along with lots of Teller mines , the quarry was then filled with water , in1946? it was only after the Quarry was to be re opened that the quarry was pumped dry and these mines came to light .all were sea dumped

    An S mine found in guernsey in the late 90,s , found in shrub land along the cliffs, with 66,000 mines laid by the Germans its not surprising the odd one gets found!
    To my knowlege nothing has been found in the last few years.

    Here is a pic showing clearly the waterproof seal. Any one seen on or got one.
    This seal looks different to the manual photo s-mine. Were these for early mines or for mid manufacture use or later.
