Original HMS Minnow Submarine Nameboard – 1955
HMS Minnow was a Royal Navy Stickleback Class midget submarine X54
The Stickleback class submarines were midget submarines of the Royal Navy initially ordered as improved versions of the older XE class submarines. They were designed to allow British defences to practice defending against midget submarines since it was theorised that the Soviets had or could develop such craft
The Royal Navy developed plans to use these craft to carry a 15 kiloton nuclear mine codenamed Cudgel into Soviet harbours. The project was unsuccessful as there were problems finding and paying for the necessary fissile material
Good condition , collectable Royal Navy name board, with brass letters and hooks to hang.
