    Here are the British WW2 .30 calibre Drill rounds (L. to r.)

    Drill Mark I - Has reject ball or AP bullet soldered to case.
    Drill Mark II - Has all in one wood bullet and distance piece that sits in case.
    Drill Mark IV - As Mark II but wood bullet is covered by metal jacket.
    (These three were all made using fired American cases, usually from Frankford Arsenal)
    Drill D.1942 Canadian Pattern - Has normal 150 grain ball bullet in case with three flutes. Headstamp is "D.C.Co. 30 SPG".

    The Drill Mark III was Indian service only.

    Drill rounds are an interesting type to collect, and there were a great variety in British service. In .303 inch alone, there were ten different marks of drill round, five of inspectors', two of armourers and a whole series of wartime expedient types. I have over one hundred .303 drill rounds alone in the collection.

    Have a look at my website shown in my signature for the different types.

    These German 'Platzpatrone' came up this week, together with some German paper labels of all sorts. All went back into the ground, but can be dugg up at any time. They all have wooden tops, and dated 1939.
