    South African bomb fuze?

    Hi Lads,
    Here is one my pal Mick got yesterday.Im sure he says its from a SA bomb for Airburst use?
    Im sure my pal Bernhard will like this one?
    The camera batteries ran out before more pics but you can see the 20mm round im asking about in the projectiles forum.

    Waff, it is THE SAME fuze on the forum that you found. I bought it off Rrickoshae a while ago and sold it to Steve McGregor on Saturday. Mick got it off him at the same show (Bisley). Its a small world isn't it!
