    25 Pounder

    Hi,

    Could someone please tell me what the colours indicate on this 25 pounder. The projectile is painted black overall with a white tip and thin red line underneath. Around the base are the remains of a white line.

    Some of the stamps in the projectile are 25PR III T S 236 NIA BHP 16642 FAT AP 2.

    The height of the projectile from base to tip is 233mm. The width of the projectile is 83mm across the base.

    It looks like it has a tracer in the base. Do they call this type of projectile a solid shot ?

    Cheers,

    This item had a suspect live tracer and was photographed before it was dealt with accordingly by EOD
