    French WW1 Fuzes.

    I need ID on these two French WW1 fuzes. I checked "Passion & Compassion" web site but I am still uncertain.

    !. Is 24/31 with a steel nose and body. I found no references. Traces of red paint. 88mm long.

    2. Is 24/31 looks like a Schneider M1916 but has a longer nose cap and left-hand thread gaine. 97mm long. Cap is 15mm high. Fuze internals shown.

    1/ 24/31 1899-1915 Short Delay.

    More info here: http://www.bocn.co.uk/vbforum/thread...wn-French-Fuze

    If I remember rightly, the brass one is a Schneider variation, I am sure MINENAZ16 who's ID'd my steel 75mm fuze will positively ID this one too!

    Hello,
    As you supposed, the brass fuze is a 24-31mm Schneider model 1916 or 1916B (tracé A1772 or A1820)
