    British Shell Casing ID

    Hello Folks -

    Picked this up on eBay. Seller's description was: "Condition is Used and was raised (1994) from an armed Trawler sunk in the English Channel in 1915"

    Well, don't know about that, but I am not familiar with the size and what it may have been used in. Also the two slots near the rim. Specs are by my measurements 62mm x 248mm...

    Any help appreciated.

    - Mike

    Mike.
    It looks like a 6Pr Hotchkiss blank. Rim should be 76mm diameter. I have not seen a blank.
    I do have the smaller 3Pr Hotchkiss blank , same length and 2 cut-outs but measures 52x248R. Rim in only 64mm.
    Your case was by Kings Norton Mk111 altered to Mk1V. Originally 1900 date. Nice item.

    Thank you Ron! Did not have this one in the collection. Hope I'm not violating any rules, but if interested he has three more:
