I did not know this

Story here.  I didn’t know that the British dumped the ordinance there.  I would have thought they’d have taken it to a deeper part of the ocean.


  1. Looks like a bad place to dump, as it is close to inhabited coastlines and would be under shipping lanes. If you really wanted it cleared the area could be swept, a bottom mine is often just a standard aerial bomb with an acoustic or magnetic fuse.

  2. Sounds like there is a lot down there. I, too, am surprised they’d dump that close to shore.
