    Good morning, please see the attached photos of a No.134 fuze in its adaptor. Has anyone any thoughts what the adaptor may be from?

    Also any thoughts on the manufacturer, see last photo

    many thanks, Dave

    Good morning Dave, nice fuze and excellent pictures. The fuze was used on the 6-inch & 9.45-inch trench mortar bombs and is based on a French design; details including drawings, photos and a different adaptor are in my book, An Illustrated Technical Guide to British WW1 Fuzes. Haven't had time to look up the manufacturer yet! Depotman

    Thank you Minenaz16 and Depotman. That is a most excellent book Trevor, if only it had been available 30 years ago I would have been so much wiser - but equally if I’d spent more time reading and less in the pub that would also apply! I haven’t come across this logo before.

    thanks to you both, Dave
