    I had a quick look in Rick Lander's book at no81. It said it uses the striker mech no3 but if you look at the picture in the book, the no81 pictured appears to have the same bakelite fuze. Very intriguing.

    That No81 is the one from Ricks book, is there any more out there.

    I have a no81. The bottom half had rotted away and was rebuilt so not as good as yours but mine has a no3 striker mech.
