    Hi Guys, Not sure if this pic is of any use, from a 1934 markings manual, regards, Tony.

    Don't think so Roller.. the colour coding has changed several times.
    Any Live or Dug ordnance shown by me has been disposed of by military EOD personnel.

    Re:3 inch 20 cwt 77 mm

    This picture may also be of use, its from the 1936 text book of ammunition (N&M reprint).
    If you want to buy a projectile then I'm open to offers on the one listed under 'swaps, 17 Pdrs'.
    You can't blame a chap for trying!

    Its also worth remembering that while the case sizes are the same for the 3\" 20 Cwt and 77 mm (76.2x420R) they not the same gun and fired different projectiles.

    Re:3 inch 20 cwt 77 mm

    Hi chaps,

    Here's a picture of my two 77mm Comet rounds. I believe the \"de-tuned\" 17PDR in the comet was a derivative of the 3inch 20CWT gun.

    I'm still looking for and HE projectile to go into 77mm MkI case with HE marking...so if anyone has one...eitherway, the rounds below are:-

    1944 77mm APCBC
    1945 77mm APDS





    Rich
