    French Connection (@37mm)

    All,
    I have a small collection of French WWII ordnance, and despite research, have always been a little uncertain about some of the rounds, in particular one or two of the 37mm rounds. This was somewhat exacerbated recently by a (more knowledgeable) friend pointing out that all were in wrong cases.!!

    I still think I'm "pretty sure" what most of these items are, but for fun (and my education) I thought it was time try to remove any confusion once and for all, and open it to the BOCN members.....As such I have added a picture of 4 projectiles and 4 cases, and the goal is to help me match the Projectile to the case, and where possible, name each item.

    For reference, the cases have the following dimensions

    Case 5 - 37x94R
    Case 6 - 37x149R
    Case 7 - 37x149R
    Case 8 - 37x277R

    I'm afraid there aren't any prizes, just satisfaction you're helping out a fellow member ;-)

    Hi Rich,
    I would say:

    1 => 8
    3 => 7
    But both 2 and 4 should be in the 37x94R cases.

    Well thats my opinion, anyone else have any ideas...?

    best Weasel.
