    Hi!
    I know this is a kind of old post, but I thought I'd help ID some items. 2nd pic is (on the far right) one end of a "cloverleaf" for a howitzer. This type (with the cutouts on them) is for powder charges.

    This one pictured is for a 155mm. From the size of yours, it looks to be 105mm.

    The upside down "U" shaped item is probably a nose fuse clip. It slipped over the nose of a shell in the fibre tube to keep it from moving around.

    This is the type I've found for 75mm-


    Just guessing on the last, but the two pieces on the far left look to be the bottom of shell casings. In the center is where the primer would be.
