    So is there anyone know from what country these mortars is? And the caliber also when they're made?
    Thank you.

    I am far from an expert. But the one on the far left looks Japanese. The other two may be british????

    Hmm interesting, thank you.
    And i never thought it's converted into table lamp. I thought it's just for decorative purpose only.
    Thank you again gents.

    The first one, which looks to be an 81mm round, initially looked a bit Chinese to me, based on the look of the fin. But the B and arrow logo is unmistakable...it's the symbol of the Swedish Bofors firm. Like a lot of companies, they exported ammunition to lots of countries over the years. Perhaps Indonesia was among them.

    I see, i never realize that. I search what company have this kind of logo and i never realize it's bofors.
    Thank you for the assistance!
    So is this mean the 81mm was made in 1951? Since there's number "1951" stamped in there? And what's the mean of "19" in there too?
