    Default Bomb parts?

    Hi,

    I've found these 3 parts last week. I found those parts all near each other so I think they might be of the same projectile. That's why I post it in 1 forumthread.
    I gave the objects names: A, B and C:

    A: 3,3 cm diameter on the bottom, 1,1 cm at the top hole. Height: 1,7 cm. At the side of the bottom there's signs of "screw thread" < correct me if my English is bad there please.

    B: 3,4 cm diameter, 1,6 cm diameter middle hole. The two holes at the sides have a 0,3 cm diameter. Also screw thread on the side.

    C: 2,5 cm diameter of the hole. The hole also has screw thread on the inside. Thickness of metal: 0,6 cm.

    I really hope if someone can identify these parts for me, so I know if they belong together or not.

    With kind regards,

    Mark

    Looks more like artillery parts to me, rather than Bomb parts

    The wall of the fragment is thicker than a bomb would be as well the Dia is Smaller

    Just my thoughts.

    The bombs I work with are much thicker cased than that and as Dean has said, much, much larger in diameter. It looks like a HE Artillery shell.

    Part A looks like part of a Mills Grenade

    Which part of the mills grenade are you thinking of? I thought maybe part B is a base plug of a mills grenade? I really don't know..

    I think its part of the anvil that holds the cap and saftey fuse.

    Part C looks to have a threat for a fuze and space for a fuze cavity. Definitely looks to be part of an artillery shell.

    "A "looks like a few dug up bases of Center tubes I have from blown M-36 Mills, this is the bottom or anvil of the center tube.
    The Center tube screws into the bottom of the M 36 and contains the J fuse that sets of the Grenade.
    Photos show a mint center tube, you can see what it would have looked like before the Grenade blew

    Thanks for the replies.

    I think you could be right there CampX, it sure looks like that part! Could "B" be a baseplug? It looks like it to me, but I can't find an example that looks exactly the same.

    Could the diameter of the thread give me an indication to which artillery shell it belonged?

    I don't think "B" is a base plug as when they blow out, it may damage the threads, but all I have ever seen come out complete, this looks more like something from the front of an Artillery round...but that's just a guess.
