- The Sea-Cell pamphlet was written by Captain Henry Moors of the Land Forces Signal & Torpedo Corps.
In the pamphlet Captain Moors investigates the theory that the zinc case of the torpedo, the iron hull of Cerberus and the sea water combined to form a sea-cell. (battery)
Captain Moors investigates whether this sea-cell could have resulted in a current being produced that was strong enough to detonate the torpedo.
