    In order to make the mine less detectable and less metal used to save for the war effort.

    Very nice thanks for showing.

    Hello! We find many, many in France because there was two factories in Amiens, and the depot was south of Amiens...

    I suppose the fragments of glass would cause some pretty nasty injuries too.

    Yes of course. Many of these mines in Alsace, to stop the Allies troops.
