Mineclearing speech

Presentation

 

Over 300 million mines have been placed during the Second World War. The engineer troops had to make the fields and paths passable back again.

Starting in 2019 in Le Recollectif, the US Mine-clearing speech explains the role of Woodwrow W. Rogers, a Texan soldier member of the 2nd Combat Engineer Battalion. The visitors can discover his job : detecting and neutralising mines. Starting in 2020, a SCR-625 detector will be available for the public to try and detect German mines. Beware of the (unlucky) discoveries !
