    Hey Jay,
    Lovely finds mate, you have been busy. The bakelite lid is in fact the base out of a German shell case, I have one too, Jay found these pictures a while ago and sent them over, sadly I cant remember the type of shell?

    The fuze is much bigger than a 40mm fuze its the remnants of a No119 B commonly used on 25pdr HE projectiles and other large projectiles,according to the info i have the No119 came into service in 1938 and the No119 B in 1943 ,,see attached image for a complete and cut fuze.
    also attached image of a cut No2 mk1 pressure switch developed by MD1 and went into production in 1939 with over 2.25 million produced during ww2.
