    British No. 35 Fuze

    Hi all, the next installment on my father's flea market fuze collection. Here is a British No.35 Fuze. There is only a complete fuze, in great condition. I have no idea what it was used on (mortar?) so you help is needed to get more information on it.

    Cheers,

    Greg

    Hello

    I agree with you, this is a 35 fuze for bombs.

    I take a look in my doc, and I found also another pistol (folded as britain, tail or noze) with n°35 also.

    What's wrong ? (or because one is fuze, and one is pistol ?)

    Hi Ron, I don't think they were made in Canada (some are marked NCR - National Cash Register (Canadian?), most are marked with a C ->, which indicated that they were Canadian military property.

    It is great score for my Dad, I wish they were mine
