Bill Williams - A floating mine

Running time
31 sec
Date made
Department of Veterans' Affairs


The Americans told us there was a Japanese submarine on the horizon. We could see the sub but we couldn't tell whether it was a Jap or not, but they knew.

The next day there was a big floating mine come down towards the boat, got into the wash and went around the back of the boat. That was our first introduction to war.
