    Looks like a cut down 6pr 7cwt. Top cut off and fake base put on the top that's been cut off.

    you may well have solved that Dave, i have just looked at a 6pr 7cwt case and the crimp is a perfect match. It did not cross my mind that it was a made up piece. Just thought it may of been one of those odd naval bits.
