It was actually a Royal Navy laid mine that sunk HMS Kurd. Her flotilla had been moved to Plymouth (Mill Bay Dock) in order to clear a British minefield of some 800 mines laid in a 'V' formation, South of Lizard Point. These mines were for anti-submarine purposes.

The loss of HMS Kurd is often incorrectly recorded as a mine laid by U-218 18 Aug, 1944.

I was a good friend of one of the survivors from HMS Kurd, the late Ted Godding whose story can be found on my web site.
