    Default VSM Shell - Assisance to identify origin / history please

    Hi all,

    I need assistance please to identify this piece.

    I can make out VSM stamp (VSM = Vickers, Son and Maxim) but no caliber or date that I can use to find out a bit more about it. Any insights or advice on where to look would be great!

    Thank you in advance

    If the length of the brass case only is 94mm and the inside of the case mouth is approximately 37mm then what you have is a 37x94R mm 1 lb pom pom shell......Pete.
