    "WPSC" Maker's mark ID

    Does anyone know who used the maker's mark "WPSC"

    It is on a (I think) British 4.5" Howitzer Mark I case, made in 1915.

    Thanks in advance for any info.

    How about Parkes S & Co Willenhall, Staffs. They were brass founders and made shell casings during WW1. Just a stab in the dark so could be wrong.
