North Sea Mine Force items

Boston Mine Monument

Among the later duties of submarine chasers was the work of helping to clear the North Sea of minefields after the war.

The duties of the mine force and later minesweeping force are memorialized by a monument placed in Boston Common, showing a Mark VI mine, one of the American electronically-triggered mines that made the construction of the extensive mine barrage possible.

Just started is a collection of images pertaining to the Boston Mine Memorial, including a photo of the monument from a journal of the minesweeping association, and some documents on the dedication and ceremonies at the monument.
