    Nice Bill

    Do you have a cut away or drawing of the fuse?

    From time to time I come across these on the battlefields of WWI. I found a few live ones of these two summer ago, needless to say I didn't take them home...

    These I found in the region of Nieuwpoort (Newport):

    Thanks Bill

    I am still getting the watermark on the pics and can not see the fuse. I forgot to log in for a few of them and have them under guest but do have more than 15 under copdoc. What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks Bill. The French "75" was an excellent weapon and was very highly rated by both friend and foe alike.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks Ade but I am logged in. The watermark is not over every picture. I made a mistake and posted some without logging in.
