    Hello There,

    These are electrical net mines used for the mine barrage (Dover Barrage) between France and the UK during WW1.
    The woman is putting air pressure into the mine to check for possible leaks in the mine casing.
    Interesting to see this picture because this is a press photo from my archives....

    Cordialement,
    Taucher
