    Default British Bomb Fuse Identification?

    Hello
    Found this British Bomb Fuse at an antique shop. It is broad Arrow marked and has C.G.M. 3/17 on it. There are a couple other marks Prior to the CGM but I cannot make them out (looks a little like roman numeral for 3). Can't seem to find the exact fuse online.

    Thought it was cool.

    Anyone have an ID for me?
    Any Help would be appreciated.

    Best Regards
    Rob

    At first glance it looks similar to the top end of a British tail fuze for a 250lb or 500lb bomb - possibly a No. 21 ?

    Any Idea what Bomb this was used with?

    Also, is the 3/17 stamp a date code or something else?

    Cheers

    Was used in the stokes assemblage for the 16lb bomb H.E.R.L (light case) and the incendiary carcass (14.5lb). Combined with a No 3 or 4 magazine they were called fuse bomb tail No. 3 or 4 and used in the 250lb Naval Bomb
    The No.1's (up to Mk IV) were already obsolete in May 1918 and replaced by the No.4 Mk1
