    1 pdr 37 x 94R info wanted.

    Hi guys, do any members have any information on 1 pdrs?
    I’ve just started collecting the smaller calibre stuff and I’ve only got a limited amount of research material on the 37 x 94R rounds.
    Does any one have a list/images of British, French, German and other nations rounds?
    Cheers.

    Spotter just sent me this link


    http://www.histavia21.net/Old-Munavi...AmmoGunDiv.htm

    Excellent French language site, I wish I'd payed more attention at school as I have no idea how to read French. Can any one translate
    'Obus Explosif Acier modèle 1916 à fusée G Gaba à 3 verrous 1918'.
    My online translater came up with
    'High-explosive shell Steel model 1916 with rocket G Gaba with 3 bolts 1918'. Is this right? fusée=fuze?
    Its one from my collction I.D.! (Obus Explosif Acier modèle 1916 à fusée Robin modèle 1899/08)
    The Picture of the British rounds are great.
    Thank you Spotter!

    French
    Nose fuzed H.E. (Nose fuzed Common shell?)
    High-explosive shell Steel model 1916.
    APHE (Common pointed?)

    British
    Common Shell.

    What is the correct term to describe the above, H.E. or Common? I'm sure they shoud be refered to as common rounds but its a term that even the dealers/collectors don't seem to use.
    If any of the I.D's are wrong please correct me!
    How rare is the British APHE common pointed?

    Cheers.

    In an old book i am reading it says that a 'common shell' is filled with black powder thats all i know about them i'm afraid.
