    Re:What type of Fuze?

    Thanks Dillo,

    That's a lot of info!

    Spotter,

    I found these on Fylingdales Moor, used as a range 1940 onwards, cleared 1961. Items found during clearance were 2\" mortar HE, 2\" Para , 3\" mortar HE, 3\" Smoke, 3\" Phos, PIAT, Energa rocket HE, 37mm smoke, 75mm HE and 79mm HE (?). Also lots of 17pdr and 25pdr.

    Forgot to mention that the fuse does have a WD crow's foot marking.

    Thanks,

    Matt

    Unfortunately not, i have to work in an office! Ex - RAOC though.

    I'm from Robin Hood's Bay originally, that's why i know the area.

    Dillo,

    Sorry, didn't actualy see/ find anything, i got the Clearance certificate from the Public Records Office which lists the items found. The area was cleared in 1961 - a bit before my time

    Spotter - are you on a EOC job at the moment?

    Re:What type of Fuze?

    Yes i am Matt...
    just a quick reminder to anyone reading this post and thinking of going up there to look for old fuzes etc..
    DONT
    this stuff is designed to kill and all these years later it is still as nasty in some cases even more sensitive.Just because a fuze is found without the projectile it does not mean it is not live and the same goes for projectiles or any other items.
    If you do find anything while out walking and you dont know what it is ,or you recognise it as a item of ordnance ,take note of the location and report it to the Police .DO NOT TOUCH IT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES,,If you need to take something take photographs
