    Top one is a British tank case (105mm?) made at ROF Birtley in November 1986 (not my area of expertise)

    The second is a British 18 Pr. Mark II made in 1914 for the 18 Pr. field gun of the Royal Field Artillery. It has been filled once with a cordite Full Charge (CF) and looks like it has been returned for reloading as it has been schleroscoped (early X ray) as shown by the "S." I suspect it was "liberated" before it was refilled.

    it was made by Kynoch, Birmingham (K) and the No.1 Mark II primer was made at Royal Laboratory, Woolwich in July 1908 (7/08).
