    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

    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
