    Nice pics Dave,with all these posts the garden will be out of control! Seriously though these rounds must be rare as hens teeth, have you ever picked any up with this late a date?

    hi Tony - fear not, the garden is totally under control! You are dead right, 18pdr shells this late are very rare. I have seen a few in other peoples collections but never owned any. I would like an AP so that I could paint it up in those colours! I'll post other pics later in the week and into next week - going to pick up that 12 inch railway gun handbook tomorrow! Dave
