hoping for a bit of help in identify these cartidge cases that I have been finding at what I thought was only a WW2 camp. I believe that these are WW1 vintage but would be grateful for any help in identifying the headstamps. You may have seen from my other post that I found a Canadian General List cap badge , 1914 type, presumably from the Candanian Expeditary Force, so it's looking like this site may have seen the Canadians in both World Wars.
I was hoping someone could explain the holes that have been drilled/punched in most of the cartidges that I have found, even the unfired ones. Any clues? Are they training rounds or is this some way of deactivating them - though seems a bit of a laborious method to me.
Sorry the images aren't great but the wife has taken the camera away AGAIN, so I have had to use the scanner
