    Well, well, well, the adventure goes on !
    Same team, a few days later, same garden, the owner finds a second piece. He remembers that the two pieces were one piece but he only remembers that now.
    Here the pictures of this second piece.

    After looking in different sources, it seems that this part would be the booster assembly of a Russian marine mine, MKB. Could someone confirm and if possible provide the technical doc of this mine? Thanks

    You have MKB mine in "Q-35-2-2" Russian Naval Mine section. Not sure about the US designation MKB, could be only KB (M added for "Mine" "Мина КБ")
    Diagrams in my doc are not precise enough.
    If you have time you can also try with this nice website : https://allmines.net/catalog/russia/mines/

    Hello everyone,
    the search for identification of this object resulted in a surprising and, hopefully, positive discovery.
    We had gone on the path of a booster assembly from the Russian KB Navy mine.
    My friend received from one of his sources a drawing much more similar to the second piece found. It would be a booster assembly of a Russian navy mine but of the M-26 and not KB.

    Below is the drawing in question.

    Could someone confirm this and, possibly, provide technical documentation and/or photos, which are more reliable than a drawing. I think this mine must be in teaching rooms around the world. Some photos identifying this booster assembly with certainty would be really welcome.


    We are left with one question: what was this f****** piece doing in a garden ?

    Hallo @Yodamaster,
    if it was not for the measurements you posted, the item conforms exactly to the WW1 Mauser 90mm trenchmortar HE-round, with the baseplate and its fuzing-system missing. See the attached drawing from Berlot.

    Eureka, my friend found the proof.
    The part found is indeed the booster assembly of the Russian mine M-26.
    He found a didactic one in a classroom and was able to check the location of his piece in his place.


    Thank you all for the help provided.
