    Smile Sea Mines Interest.

    I've had cause to dig up a number of sea mines type 93 donated by the Germans to the Japanese from a Jap tunnel in Sungei Nibong on Panang Island in 1968, with the help of "Jolly Jack" clearance divers from HMS Terror,when we stripped down( The Mines) found them to be in very good nick even the wiring, the Japs did us these mines and I've attached a couple of pictures. One is a cleaned out mine outside the O.C's office & the other is of a mnne washed up in AUS.

    Japanese submarine I-6, laid 9 mines magnetic, including six German TMC type mines near the approaches to the Brisbane River on 13 March 1942. Can anyone confirm whether the mine washed up on the beach is linked to the mining operations of Japanese submarine I-6?

    Jack mantle's headstone

    photo of the brave lad's headstone. Sad that so many of the bodies recovered from the sinking remain unidentified.

    It's the standard cupola used in several british minesystems. I don't have my library at hand, but the lack of sockets for horns on the body and the two sockets on the top cover suggest that someone has replaced the cover on an influence mine with the cover from a contact mine.
