    2.95inck Vickers-Maxim Pack Howitzer Shell Case


    Recommended Posts


    I originally posted this under Militaria when it should more properly have been in this forum:

    On Thursday in the souk in Riyadh I purchased a 2.95 inch Vickers-Maxim (I think) brass shell case dated 1916 - a chain and lid had been affixed to allow for carriage and storage of small coffee cups. I believe that this gun was only used in "colonial" conflicts. Is there any way of ascertaining whether such artillery pieces were used by Lawrence & Co during the Arab Revolt?

    Many thanks,

    Owain Raw-Rees
