    Sea Mine;

    Sir;
    Your very fine object is the mooring base plate for a moored mine.
    Unfortunately my references as to model is back home in Virginia.
    Best I can offer for now.
    Regards,
    John aka Bart

    Falcon,

    The HII came into service in the Britisch navy in 1917.Stocks where still in use during WWII.

    Bloome,

    What do you think 5-17 stands for.That is your date!The arrow is from Britisch laboratory and is a acceptance stamp.
