    The Dutch Tijdschokbuis No. 6 was made of brass and only used by the Dutch colonial army (NIL).

    Wonder why nobody bought it? If it were a German tool I would have immediately bid on it. At least here such tools are very hard to find.

    Likely a British gauge. J T Lowke and Sons, Northampton are listed as making jigs and gauges for 4.5-inch shell.

    Daft question, but is there any way of distinguishing whether this is a British piece, or Canadian/American? Also, is it for 4.5 shells?

    Great work! I just wonder how the 8,8 cm Ltgr L/4,4 for Heer/Luftwaffe guns was marked... Did it have the black band under the fuse too?

    Loos like a British VSM s/35 (maybe a krupp inspiration). I assume quite rare. Be careful your fuze is live (emissions holes closed)
