Description
English: A close up view showing the access panels and fusing mechanisms on a parachute deployed, German magnetic mine, which appears to have landed on the grounds of the Woolwich, Arsenal. The mine is intact and is partially buried nose first in the soft ground. The top section above the flange, contained the parachute. This image is from the collection of Lieutenant (Lt) Hugh Randall Syme, GC, GM and bar, Royal Australian Naval Volunteer Reserve who was based at HMS Vernon, Portsmouth, from 1940 to 1942. Lt Syme rapidly developed a reputation for bravery, especially in delousing the unfamiliar German magnetic mines. He was awarded the George Cross and the George Medal and Bar for a string of successful mine recoveries. In January 1943 he returned to Australia and was appointed as the Commanding Officer of a bomb disposal section at HMAS Cerberus. He left the Navy in 1944, returning to the family business of running The Age newspaper in Melbourne.
