    This was fired from the British 25 pounder field gun.

    Ordnance QF 25 pounder - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    "ECC" is the maker of the shell case, but I do not know who they were.

    Cheers, Ade.

    E.C.C has been identified as E.Curran & Co from cardiff..
    i would like to add that E.C.C has also been described as Elswick Cartridge Company,this is likely to be a misinterpretation of the more commonly found EOC stamp for Elswick Ordnance Company
