Pages of HIstory: Torpedo warnings for coast

From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, March 1942.

A torpedo of unexplained origin was found on a beach north of Point Cabrillo light station in Mendocino County last week by Mr. and Mrs. Hayford of Stockton.

The visitors were fishing at the beach when they noticed the strange object and on closer inspection found it to be a brightly painted torpedo about 24 feet in length. It appeared to be intact even to its firing pin.

The Army headquarters at Russian Gulch was immediately notified of the discovery and the instrument placed in charge of the Coast Guard.
