    Default WW1 French Shell

    Hello,
    I was given this shell case by a friend the other day.
    It is dated 1917 with 'POLTE' 'MAGDEBURG' written on the base.
    It is 57cm tall, and caliber appears to be 150-155mm (not too sure as top is slightly bent).
    Any info regarding the gun it would be used in, or photos of complete shells etc, would be much appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Jimbo.
