It's a 25 Pounder Smoke projectile and it is empty. Someone has removed the smoke canisters because it has not been fired.
is 25-pdr smoke Mk 1D (Fuze No 221)
in my area (italy) sometimes you find some when are working the land and they are always empty back
But ours are fired, your no
I do not know how the detonator
Hi Guys, thanks for the speedy response. Does this mean it is safe to be in the house?
Yes very safe unless it falls of the table onto your foot!
As it hasn't been "fired" (driving band is smooth) then is generally more valuable than a "fired" one (driving band has rifling marks)- looks like it would clean up very nicely.
