    Hello Jeff,

    Thanks for the information. It makes perfect sense that they would have seen very little, if any armor and the Japanese tanks of that time were quite small. This mine is not much bigger than a hand grenade so even on the smallest tank, a lot of luck would have been needed to cause any damage.
    I would love to attend the SLICS this year but we will see if there is any money left over after the SOS. I may be on a diet of ramen noodles after the show..... Pat

    Understood, that's why I skip SOS, not enough money for everything.
    All dug or live ordnance shown in my posts is under EOD control and has been or will be dealt with accordingly by EOD personnel

    Pat, probably won’t go to the SOS, work is slow during the winter months. It kills me I can’t go. Find any more inert Japanese aerial bombs!? Awesome.....

    JO, hope things are good with you also! I really enjoy your Bombatorium thread. Great stuff and good Japanese finds!
