Guernseyman Maurice Sangan brought in a small, wooden, tobacco pipe.
He recalled: "In Guernsey in June 1946 I discovered a large black sea mine with horns in Grandes Rocques bay, where it had been beaten against the rocks by the high tide. I called the Bomb Disposal Unit of the Beach Ordinance Corps, who were clearing mines and barbed wire from the beaches.
They arrived with two army officers and a group of German prisoners of war.
"I was smoking a pipe at the time, when one of the prisoners asked me for some tobacco in exchange for his hand-carved pipe. Considering it a bargain, I accepted. The bowl was carved using a razor blade to represent the image of the Kaiser, with a brass ring connecting the carved stem and the mouthpiece.
The pipe measures 7 inches and 5 eighths long, the bowl is 1 inch and three eighths wide, and it is made of a light honey-coloured elmwood. I smoked it once to prove its worth, but never again, to protect it."
