    75mm Pack Howitzer projectiles

    Not the best photo for detail at the moment, but here's a shot of my M64 Smoke round for the M1A1 Pack Howitzer.



    I'll get better photographs of this and the M48 HE rounds shortly.

    All the best,
    Paul Bellamy

    More......

    I pulled one of the crates out of the stack tonight:



    Inside, almost what it says on the side:



    More to come, mainly fuze related, including one in its fibre tube, and a post-war fuze crate. Just as soon as I get new batteries for the camera. Oops.

    TTFN,
    Paul

    Ta for that.

    That'll be the standard M48 Semi-fixed HE round with the M48 PD Fuze.

    Would love to know if anyone has the patterns for the charge bags so I can make some inert (rice-filled) ones for the display.

    All the best,
    Paul
