MTB 18

Postby Pioneer » Sun Aug 16, 2009 6:25 pm

This short video clip shows the damage to MTB 18 after ramming an enemy boat. Best viewed in 'Large Screen'
This unique example of silent video footage is from British Pathe. We are hoping to secure a license with which we hope to add similar clips in the future.

According to Leonard Reynolds in Home Waters MTB's & MGBs at War, Lt JT Manooch RN, CO of MTB 18, had thought he was about to ram an enemy S boat but too late he realised that the boat was a more robust minesweeper.
