    Yes, but it is/was a very thin layer.

    Thanks for that. Do you know what the typical practice was for paint below the drive band? Bare metal? Primer? Primer and paint? etc.

    Nearly there. I also got depotman’s fuze adaptor ring which is looking like it has functional threads in the fuze pocket.

    I’m going to put it back in the citric acid for a few more days, but I’m not going to drive myself mad trying to remove every last bit of rust. Any remnants will be neutralised with Kurust before I coat it with filler.

    ...below the driving band also red oxide paint + blue was used.

    More progress. Post acid clean I gave the interior and exterior a coat of Kurust. Then for a little extra authenticity, I painted the interior in red oxide primer. Now onto filling in the pitting on the exterior + finish cleaning the fuze adaptor ring.

    95% of the pitting eliminated in one fell swoop, but it’s always the last few % that takes the longest. (Not to mention the vast quantity of sanding now required...)
