    Fuzed German gas shells

    Hello all,

    Just a quick question: Would it be correct to fit a German HZ 14 Fb fuze to a First war Blue or Yellow cross gas shell (long version)?
    I find a lot of references to EHZ 16, etc, but not a lot in the way of HZ14's.

    Many thanks in advance!

    Yeah, but was just wondering & thought I’d ask.

    In attachment the fuze I initially asked the question for :

    Ok, other subject.
    Not common fuze, nice example in very good condition, "Grz14 Ohne Zundladung" (détonator removed).
    As far as I know, this fuze is used with 15cm incendiary shell.
    Red paint (and star or circle) stands for reinforced primer.
