    Hi thanks for your reply Ade, yes i have looked at this one - but i was hoping to see a High Explosive shell, as this one is a shrapnel shell. Any ideas?
    Regards
    Jimbo.

    Drop a line to Allan (Spotter) I am sure he might be able to help?

    My Grandad was a gunner in WW1 on 18 prds.

    Cheers, Ade.
