    Three British 1Pdr. Projectiles

    I have no information on these ? Does any one have any information they can put forth .

    1 Pdr. MKll Broad Arrow proofed, slightly blunted nose from MK1. What were these meant to be loaded in ? Three known, all found in 1917 dated EOC cases, clearly not original to the projectiles.

    MK1 Steel Projectile, U.S. projectile made for the 1916 Cannon, this one marked , Broad Arrow proof, 1 (polished off)PR. An American projectile in British service ? But Why. No others known.

    VAD 1933 1 Pdr. Solid shot, Was this made for the standard 1pdr. 37x94r casing, as it appears by it's size and style. It is not a 1 1/2 Pdr. type. No others known.

    You checked the Ammunition book presumably. That is very curious.
    "in Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder, and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love - they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock."

    the book

    woops, I thought the book was Werner Sunkel's on 'The Hotchkiss Cartridge in 37mm' a most informative work.
