    I think you`r right Eric,we need the exact length in millimeters of the cases only,and the inside diameters of the case necks,also in MM. Then maybe they can be ID`d.

    The U.M.C is 306 mm from bottom of case to top, inside neck diameter of case is 60mm. Smaller case is 95 mm bottom to top of case , inside neck 40mm. Thank you.

    The smaller case is a French 37mm M1885 for the Hotchkiss revolveing cannon and the WWI Puteaux trench gun.

    It was made in August 1916 (8-16) at the Parc D'artillerie de Paris.

    The longer one is I think the 1 1/2 pr."Heavy" Hotchkiss.
