Typed on paper glued to back: “German mine washed ashore on Hokio Beach on November 14, 1918. It was found up towards the Hydrabad. I remember (F.C. Swanwick) that Constable Greggan exploded it by shooting at it with a .303 rifle. Wally Phillips said he thought several marksmen took part in the shooting.”

German Mine, Hokio Beach, 1918. A woman, three young men and a boy pose beside the mine which has “14/11/18 German mine E W Clark” written on it.
