    But I don't know when this kind of gun were tested. The BS (Blockhaus Schneider) gun came in 1916.
    I only have this entry for 144-145mm case.

    This one in picture is supposed to be a tank case (144-145) :
    Attachment 162358
    Obviously my case has not been restamped, whichever gun it was for. Is this unusual? Must have been a little confusing for the chaps on the ground.
    Always looking for projectiles, cases, fuzes and paperwork related to Burney and Davis guns.

    @BURNEY DAVIS: 1879 is the lot number of 1915 made by Ateliers de Construction de Rennes, in Brittany. What's weird is that the case was modified and not restamped, it should have been.

    I have 3 similar cases, all restamped with "S" which could stand for Schneider, then "6", "13" and "105" that must be the lot number ? and "17" must be the year and "RS" could also stand for Ateliers de Construction de Rennes, since when reloaded there the mark is only RS and not ARS.

    @MINENAZ16: to make things more unclear, my 3 cases have different lengths: 1432, 143.5 and 144mm

    If I am not mistaken, the 75S Schneider was made to use rejected 75DEC Field Gun projectiles that could have exploded in the barrel when fired with a full charge. Does this mean there was no specific projectile developed? Were the French using shells which were seconds also in the tanks?

    Last but not least, how scarce are these cases?

    The rejected 75 mm Shells (all designs 1915) unfits for use in artillery gun were used in 75 mm Trench Mle 1915A and could be used as aerial bombs an other trench systems
    The case use in Mle 1915 T is different in length (smaller)

    Hi doctor, very interesting indeed. What is the case length of the Mle 1915T? What's the difference between Trench Mortar 1915A and T? Thanks
