They look slightly familiar. One of my finds still looks like crap after being given the vinegar concentrate bath for a couple of (smelly) days.

Can I "borrow" your sand blaster one day, or is it non-portable.

Hello David,

It's in the firm but if no one notices you pulling up in a lorry and me loading it up with a fork lift, then of course you can borrow it. biggrin.gif

You kidding? My hands are scrathed and scared, the iron brush has lost a lot of bristes, but with 3 litres of vinegar, an ron brush and an opinel as rust Cutter/Chipper, I have had some wonderful results. Will get pics up in a few days.

Make sure you secure the blade this time otherwise you'll never be able to order 10 beers.

I guess I am a bit accident prone.... sad.gif it drives the wife crazy. I have 3 fingers in wrapped in plasters at the moment with a special cream to suck the dirt out of wound.... mix rust, concentrated vinegar and oil and it does make a mess of a cut....

Well done Chris!

I haven't seen any like this before but since the trip to Verdun and the Somme I've probably seen about 25 of them and that's in the last 4 weeks. Actually I think I've got one with the top part of the shell attached, I'll take a pic after I've cleaned it.

Chris, they are copying shells now?

Take a look at my unfired 75mm shrapnel shell, do you think it?s a copy? I bought it 3 years ago without even thinking something like that would be copied.

The markings on the side are hard to make out but look like:

FD

WC

SC SC

?4

The bottom has Y over semi circle.

I think this is my part :D

First one is a french "Fusee percutante 24-31, modele 1897"; an impact fuse for HE-shells from 75 mm to 155 mm (or bigger). Second one is a "Fusee fusante 22-31, modele 1897" for 75 mm shrapnel shells.
