'.SUBMARINE MINERS. Last Saturday this corps returned from their annual training at Plymouth. The training lasted 22 davs. about 180 men (that is, three engineer omn names) were present during the first two weeks S about 120 remained for the third week. The Barry Detachment consisted of Lieutenant J. A. "Rushes Surgeon-Lieutenant Edwards, and 30 non- commissioned officers and men. The corps were quartered at the Elphinstone Barracks aojoming the Hoe During the three weeks the weather was •nerfectr—not one wet day. The men received 5s. a day pay, and were charged Is. per day for food. The corps laid the submarine mines used ior de- fending the Borrisand Entrance to Plymouth Sound" The mines were subsequently tested, and the entrance was attacked by four ships, which attempted to pass into the Sound at night. In every case, however, the ships were unable to pass in Of safely. All the members of the corps thoroughly enjoyed the training. The conduct of the men was excellent. We are glad to hear that no member of the Barry Detachment was guilty of even a minor offence, such as constantly occur amongst all bodies of troops, and that the detach- ment, as a whole, was noted for its smartness and efficiency, as well as its good conduct, whilst at Plymouth.
