    Nice brass! The fuse (timer) looks great also!

    Very nice but the case and projectile do not belong together. The case is for the US 75mm How which was introduced for service in 1927, first having undergone trials in 1920, well after WW1. The projectile is for the US 75mm gun....the one the US " borrowed" from the French.

    Nice one Steve. I have one also. Do the rings in the fuse turn as mine do?

    Thanks

    "The German Army is the perfectly adapted, perfectly running Machine. The difference is that the Germans are organised with a view to War...with the cold, hard, practical and business-like purpose of winning victories."
