Torpedoman/Mineman Day in the Russian Navy

Mu_Rena at "The Sea is Everything" notes that 20 June marks the 155th anniversary of the first use of torpedoes against an attacking enemy force by the Russian Navy. The Imperial Russian Navy used these new weapons against an Anglo-French squadron attacking Kronstadt Island and other Russian Navy targets in the Gulf of Finland. Mu_Rena congratulates all minemen and torpedomen and posts this video as a present to all of you:
