    None have ever been found in this country , it was whilst searching a bomb dump in Sicilly .
    It is a chemical Long delay action fuze withy a built in Mechanical anti Withdrawl device.

    hello again Lee,,In the book "designed to kill" by Major Arthur Hogben page 252 it says ref the 57 " a technique was developed of completely filling the fuze with a quick setting synthetic resin,thus totally and permanently jamming the mechanical movement"

    Spott,Ive seen these 57`s with the band removed(near the bottom) and they look quite good.I remember trying to explain to Rickoshea at Beltring last year that i had seen a 57 that looked `different` than the normal ones.
    I now realise that it was a standard one with said band removed!,No wonder he looked baffled at me! Sorry Dave for jangling your head that day!

    best
