    Torpedo or may be British air dropped mine? The diameter may fit "A type" mines although the length is rather short (the body was generally over 2m long)

    Is there an 18" version of the G7?

    I thought they were a 21" torpedo

    Hi everyone, I've just returned from the Uxo job on the Ems River and have taken some more pictures and measured some sizes, maybe we can do more with that.

    thank you in advance
