WWII Sea Mine
WWII Sea Mine
WWII Sea Mine. The Shore, Aberdour.
Enjoying charitable status in peacetime. A collection tin for "The Shipwrecked Fishermen & Mariners Royal Benevolent Society". How on earth the pointy parts are allowed in this day and age, without protection and at head height to a toddler is beyond me. Av' someone's eye out that. I would have thought the Council would have fitted a guard or removed the spikes. It gives me a chill every time I walk past it. An accident waiting to happen.
I have listed this under the category of "mine" though I fear it will look out of place if one does a search for all the mines in the area! This mine would have been swept up after the war. During the strikes of the 70's and 80's the local miners wept as collyer..colliyr...collier... er, pit after pit closed down.
