Invasion of Normandy
Oyster Mines During the Normandy Invasion

Veteran of the British Royal Navy, Harry Card, tells his personal story about the day his ship, the late HMS Swift, was attacked on June 24, 1944 whilst in support of the Normandy Invasion off Sword Beach. Card recalls what it was like as the vessel began to sink after being affected by something known as an oyster mine, which were mines that were dropped in the water and would explode when a ship passed by them.
