    Default driving me mad....help

    hello people, ive read the stickys & done a bit of googling but i just cant seem to find out what kind of shell/cartridge this is or what it was fired from.
    it was given to me by my late uncle & i think its german as it has mkII stamped on the head although i may be wrong as i am by no stretch of the imagination an expert.
    its the bigger cartridge in the group pic (just to give you some size scale)

    any info would be much appreciated

    thanks
    terry

    yeah thats what i assumed at first but while googling i read that germans were the only ones that stamped anything with mk on the head but you know what googles like.
    now (thanks to you) i know its a british 2 pounder i'll have a much better idea of what fired it

    I think the 2 pr was the main British tank round.
