    Unknown Proximity Fuse No 1

    Evening all,

    I have an unknown proximity fuse with absolutely no markings at all - current "guestimate": post war 3.7" proximity fuze, perhaps experimental.........

    All thoughts are most welcome.

    Thanks
    Cheers
    Drew

    In case anyone is wondering why I think it may be for 3.7"AA - looks very similar in design, shape, thread to the unmarked N81 Mk4 (Which I also think is experimental)

    Hello Drew
    I also have the top part of this proximity fuze - No base extension. Gray plastic cone and a copper band.
    It came in a box of assorted Australian etc fuze bits about 1990 and I believe it is Australian or experimental? Mine also has no markings.

    I missed the second photos with brass tip and plastic band.
    I also had two of these fuzes in the same lot. Mine is stamped:
    N 81 MK 4 GH MF 2/57 110 so it is definitely Australian
