O'Mansfield was mostly known by either of his two nicknames, <i>Sardine</i> or <i>Tangle-Eye</i> (the later due to his lazy eye). My family has recorded the dropping of the 'O' in front of Mansfield around the time my Great-grandmother married a German man and moved to <i>Worms, Rhineland-Palatinate</i> (1907). But <i>Sardine/Tangle-Eye</i> picked it back up when he joined the navy.</p><p> </p><p>For several years after the war <i>Sardine/Tangle-Eye</i> was in charge of locating and dismantling ocean mines left behind by the enemy. During this time he began his first sketches of the submarine-launched<i> MiG-25 Foxbat</i>, a fantastical idea that did not get realised until well after his death. </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>
