    What type of Fuze?

    Hi,

    Can anyone identify this - guessing it's a mortar fuze of some type.



    Markings are as follows -

    24/31 RYG
    MLE 19181

    BKI is CY 6-42 121

    Cheers

    Thanks Spotter!

    More questions i'm afraid!

    Found this on a former Anti-tank / infantry training area in North Yorks. What British units would be using this equipment? I've a vague recollection of a reference to the 75mm gun being used for training as nothing else was available after Dunkirk.

    Is the CY marking the Chorley BKI, or is it something French? I've another two fuzes with similar CY numbers.

    Thanks,
    Matt

    Re:What type of Fuze?

    The 'Mlle 1918' Model 1918 replaces the model 1917 and was adapted and produced by several countries. It is based on the Remondy-Gaba system.
    It is a direct action percussion fuze containing 2 grams of Mercury Fulminate. The 'Remondy-Gaba system' should be read and understood as a patent.. (the French use systéme instead of patent)...

    Now, that should give you a lot to think about.

    Cheers,
    Dillo

    PS: it is a direct copy of the Stokes Brandt percussion fuze, and Stokes Brandt is in fact the Swiss Energa buro who also represented and develloped for PRB and MECAR.. (how small the world is) and how neutral the Swiss were.. LOL
