I remember a visit to Crete when I was in the Navy in 1963. Crete had a small beach the military used and sometimes airmen would take a car down there and blow the carbon out of it, hence the nickname, "carbon flats."

The Germans placed a lot of mines in Crete during the war and thos things have a long life.

An airman managed to run over one while blowing the carbon out of his car.

It was not pretty.
