A drift­ing mine is hauled onto a beach by Bri­tish mil­i­tary per­son­nel in south­west Eng­land. Hun­dreds of de­struc­tive sea mines were dropped into the English Chan­nel af­ter the out­break of World War II, in­clud­ing buoy­ant and sub­merged mag­netic ex­plo­sives. The

Al­lies also utilised mines in or­der to pro­tect key har­bours from

U-boat at­tacks.
