    Does anyone have any pictures/information on the Mk I L (water armed) fuze that goes into the Type 6 Mk I Limpet mine?

    Cheers

    A fuse for these mines was very different to a standard type of L?

    Hi everyone. First post.

    I am by no means a technical expert on this stuff (especially limpeting equipment), but I came across the following attachments during recent research and immediately thought of BOCN

    Instructions for the use of the Fuze, Anti-Disturbance (Water Armed) Mk. I.L.

    No book I'm afraid, it was from SRD's D/Tech Technical Bulletin No. 12 "Anti-Removal Fuse (Water)" dated April 1944.
