    Re:BRITISH \"L\" SERIES 120mm PROJECTILES

    Hello Rich,yours is experimental hence the colour ,the red ring i believe indicates it has a tracer units,HE sub is High explosive substitute,this can be mis-leading there can be a variety of different fillings Wax or even a Low explosive or other ,it does not mean the item is free from explosives unless it is marked otherwise,could you take a picture of the base Richard ,is it flat or does it have a fuze pocket if it has a fuze pocket it will have a small oblong slot

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

    Hi Spotter, the other side of the proj is clearly marked INERT. ...else I'd have given it straight back. Must be the southern softie in me, but I try to only collect AP stuff, so I can sleep at night. ;-)

    The base definitely does have quite a large pocket, and from quick examination, seems to be identical to the drawing you posted for version L31/A7. I can see what I think is a yellow felt pad at the bottom

    Ill take some more pics and post, good reference if nothing else.

    Rich
