    Hi Ewan, it is a WW1 British 18prd case.

    My Grandad was on these guns in the Great War. I have shown a photo of some of these in my thread about him in the WW1 forum

    Nice early Xmas present

    Please post any others you have in this forum.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Nice little present that is Ewan

    I also admire the way the 1915 dated shell case has kept up with modern developments and can be clearly seen using a laptop. Very impressive.
