    2 Pdr Common Pointed
    2 Pdr H.V.
    2 Pdr HE.
    2 Pdr H.V.
    2 Pdr H.E. with a Hotchkiss base fuse (HE AP?) remains of red and white band around the tip. Fuse missing the top rings.
    Cartridge clip for 1 1/2 & 2 PR

    If any members have any 1 or 2 pdr related items to swap or sell then I'm always on the look out for things. I am still looking for No.121 and 243 fuses, Little John round etc. I've got some large calibre stuff to swap (17 pdrs 3.7 AA etc) If you've got anything please drop me a line.

    Hi Waff.

    The 3.7" is British (very nice, unfired no pitting:P)
    well worth a swap for somebody?

    Re:British 2 pdr tank and anti aircraft rounds

    Excellent items QM, it's really nice to see items that have not been messed with over the years, unfortunately with the nature of ordnance, there always seems to be bits missing, holes drilled, "trench art":angry: or turned into a lamp !
    As a matter of interest, I could have filled a large wheelbarrow with the 2pdr flat top practice shot about 25 years ago, as I came across a few, but did not know what they were at the time and only collecting grenades, left them behind. Oh the benefit of hindsight ! Tony.

    I agree with the boys that you have a nice collection squire!
    Has it taken several years or have you just been into it for a short while?

    Quatermass ref the 2pdr with Fuze, Percussion, Base, Tracer, No. 281, Mark I i have only seen drawings of this fuze before thanks for sharing it,this thing could easily be mistaken for a practice round fitted with tracer

    Any Live or Dug ordnance shown by me has been disposed of by military EOD personnel .
