That is a great photo! What I find interesting is (what appears to be) a crude "Claymore" mine with an aiming sight. Also, the British type "Mills Bomb" grenade.

Thanks for posting it!

You are correct, that is one of the models of MĐH, Mìn định hướng, meaning directional mine. Although they were fairly well standardized and mass produced, there were numerous versions and variations made by different workshops. I think that one is probably an MĐH-2 but I am not certain of that.
