    Hi John,

    The cartridge base you have is a 1 1/2" J Mk IV T illuminating cartridge. The bases were 'milled' for easy night time recognition like this:
    Milled all round = Red.

    1/2 Milled Circumference = White.

    1/4 Milled Circumference = Yellow.

    Unmilled Circumference = Green.

    Hope this helps,

    Regards, Ned.

    They could well be the transport nuts off aerial bombs. However, I think they are more likely to be off drop tanks but not Bowater ones......I have 7 of the bowater drop tank filler caps and they don't look at all like this.

    Nice finds.
    With you finding the starter cartridges I guess you must have moved over onto the airfield where the aircraft were rather than the camping area where you got all the coins. Keep up the good work.
