    Nice collection Tim. I still have some 1 inch brass Royal Artillery training flares for your collection. I will bring them with me on the 15th. Cheers, Simon.

    The one next to the Bofors is a 105mm Squash Head Practice round, the blue one below is a 120-mm CHARM 3 (Challenger Armaments 3)
    Fin Stabilised Discarding Sabot practice round and the very last one with the fins is a rare early version of a fin stabilised artillery round and is around 90-mm calibre. The Boffors are a nice pair, the one on left of the picture is a drill while the other a mint 1943 dated High Explosive. I love cannon rounds in particular. Regards, Tim.

    Tim, that 105mm Squash Head Practice Round looks heavy. How much does it weigh (roughly) ?
    Cheers, Simon.

    Hi Simon, Its not too bad weight wise and id say at a very rough guess around 20-25lbs. It was for use in post WW2 105-mm Tank guns. Its a fired round minus its driving band. Regards, Tim.

    the 15mm MG151 round is nice- pretty uncommon, that, since it wasn't used so much as its bigger cousin the 2cm MG151/20...
    Ohhhhh- pillage then burn...
