    Default Great war 18pdr cases, Can anyone tell me more?

    Hi Gents

    These are the first pieces of great war militaria trench art that started my collecting, they were given to me by a relation many years ago, with no story, other than that she could always remember them in the lounge at the farm she grew up on, the "beer" tankard has a handle made from 4 303 cases I think dated 1914 (well, G14 anyway) and the other three shell cases are all early or pre war dated, I like the surface finish on the 08 example, like a mirror, compared to the very rough machining on the 1916.

    Anyway, there are a myriad of other stamps, I wonder if anyone on here could tell me a little more from these.

    Thanks in advance
