Mr Monkey visits Seafront Zeebrugge, 17th September

"It's a mechanically powered fish, you know"

Mr Monkey looking at a German torpedo tube Mr Monkey examining the inside of a British torpedo

Mr Monkey found that SeaFront had a collection of torpedoes of many nations and colours from both world wars. He studied a German torpedo launcher from the First World War and decided it was probably the sort that would be mounted on the deck of a warship, rather than in a submarine. Mr Monkey looked inside a British Second World War torpedo which was pointing at a German torpedo from the same period. Finally he examined the bright yellow Poisson Auto Propulsé, a tiny remote controlled submarine used to find and destroy mines.
