Thought id just show this photo to the members who like biggish ordnance items. This is a US 8-Inch (203mm) High Explosive Howitzer shell. Not sure if this particular example is WW2 or post war manufacture but i beleive this HE round was more or less standard for both the wartime and post war 8-inch Howitzers in the US inventory. This one contains no explosive filling and weighs around 230lbs and has been filled with concrete. As you might imagine its a devil to transport as very heavy and awkward, but once you get it on the sacktruck its no problem. Its the biggest round i have in my collection to date and dont think i would want anything bigger as the logistics and costs involved are just too much. Tim.
