    Hi Everyone

    Came across this amazing piece of ordnance in New Zealand today

    i gather its Boer War, its a 15 pounder with a time fuse of the period
    The most fascinating part to it...... is it has a grappling projectile inside the round.
    i say grappling because thats what it looks like it could be used for.

    Fuse marks- 10/00 R(arrow)L IV 722 p
    Steel Fuse part- S5
    Timer - 0-18 , (inside time has a) - N D
    Round base- 15 DR III, F S, RL
    Driving Band- K, BCO

    Can anyone help identify it or point us to reference they might know of that might mention this type of ordnance being used.

    i have posted lots of pictures of it. im sorry if its too many

    Not such thing as too many photos . It looks to me like a naval round used against sailing ships rigging . I would research naval ammo and see if you can find a similar example .
