    As Zwerge says, the small round is a Canadian made .55 inch Boys, more precisely an Armour-piercing W Mark II round.

    SOE was very active with the partizans in this area so the Boys is not surprising. There was an SOE "shopping list" with code words for the various stores that agents could request by radio to be dropped to them. The code for a Boys rifle was "Cabbage" and for 300 rounds of ammunition "Sultana".

    I believe that the large case is a German made case for captured Russian 76.2mmx385mm guns,they used a lot of them.The code bnf on the case is for Metalwerk Wolfenbuttel,Braunschweig.You might find a WaA392 stamp on it too.

    Lokvar,i cant believe you find that!!! There is no barrel?
    Zwerge,it coud be,they use a lot of captured artillery in Yugoslavia. Near that place i find those french 75 mm cartridges. But they are to short for 47mm SA 37 AT gun.Here was some Somua tanks,coud it be for theyrs 47mm guns?
