    Thumbs up Nice items

    Lee, you need a new house possibly on an industrial estate with an attached wharehouse

    Nice to see something that is a little different.

    Very nice Lee.

    Do you have an data on these? Weight, weight of HE, gun fired from, muzzle velocity, range, fuzing, effective depth - that kind of thing?

    Found it, thanks Lee.

    I only wish that Conway would extract their collective digit and publish Campbell's "Naval Weapons of World War 1" which they've been sitting on since his death many years ago.
