Help in this mortar shell
Article about: Hello dear collectors, today i just bought this mortar shell. This shell don't have any marking on it. And after a bit of research, i found out this shell is a british 2 inch smoke bursting
Re: Help in this mortar shell
I have some suspicions about this round.
In the first instance, the round does bare some similarities to the British 2 Inch type.
.. BUT, looking at the fuse/detonator, I have the feeling there may be more to it.
Possibly ... a Japanese improvised mortar round !!!!
Have a look at this link .... Figure 224 half way down the page ....
I suggest you contact the web author at the following e-mail, with some pictures ...
