    long delay fuze No.47 MK I

    Hello fellow collectors,
    here an image of the hard to find chemical long delay (30min) side pocket pistol, used by the British in WW II. This particular one was made and converted from a No.53 MK II long delay tail pistol (60min). The orriginal stencillings were overstamped. the fuze was used in the side pocket of the GP-1900lb, GP-12000lb & GP-22000lb, HC-2000lb & HC-4000lb.
    Enjoy the image
