PortandTerminal.com, October 12, 2019

Editor’s note: “Image of the Day” is a new feature that we have recently launched. We work in an amazing industry. Let’s celebrate its beauty together by sharing the incredible imagery taken by our colleagues of what we do. Have a photo/video to share? Please send it to info@portandterminal.com along with the name of the photographer who took it (if available) so that we can give them the credit that they are due.

Today’s image: Boy on a Bomb

“Boy on a bomb” (Photographer unknown) 1949

The photograph was taken after WW2 on a Normandy beach where the mine had washed up in 1949. We do not know if it is a German or British mine. Both forces used this type mine during WW2.

Naval mines were not as important in World War II as they had been in World War I, but both the Allies and axis employed them in large numbers.
