    Default Hand sewn mines, and flamethrowers

    I have read about a "hand sewn" mine. Based on my poor reading/translation skills in Russian, it sounds like some sort of mine, that the soldier simply armed, by pulling a pin, or cord, then threw in the path of oncoming enemy troops to slow them down. It seems to also be referred to as a "Cavalry mine", as it was intended for use by Cavalry/Mounted troops to sew by throwing behind them as they withdrew.

    Has anyone else ever heard of this?

    Does anyone have a picture, or description of this mine?

    Flamethrowers:

    I am interested in proper GPW era flamethrowers of the Soviet Union.

    does anyone know of any good books, or other sources?

    As far as I know there no any owners of the ROKS flamethrowers in the West, exclude the Thomas Salazar- owner of the Ostfront - German and Russian WWII militaria, we'we make the deal with him to the ROKS-2 about 10 years ago, I suspect he still owe this nice and rare item.
    I think this flamethrower was posted here some time ago

    I know this one is not wartime, nor is it mine, but isn't it lovely! For sale the other week in Hungary.

    Cheers, Ade.

    A type of Gammon Bomb maybe?

    No. 82 Grenade - Gammon bomb

    The Japanese had a Cloth wrapped Mine, but I don't remember what it was called.

    "Sewn" implies needle and thread. "Sown" would be like sowing seeds, or in your case, Mines. Both are pronounced the same way though.
