    41A and Charge

    Hear is another 41a Butterfly bomb with a lot of pits or are they rough casting marks as there is still a fair amount of paint remaining.

    No signs of any stampings but the fuse fits a treat.

    Very nice body and fuze there Phil.

    Think you could be right maybe just a rough casting, from the photos the paint looks original enough.

    would be nice to see some pics of the markings too!!

    regards Kev

    Hi Kev

    I cant find not even a trace of any markings and normally there were some
    at least on the ends.

    I have done a tracing paper rubbing just in case but nothing.

    Sorry Phil, just re-read your original post and you said no markings.

    Still, a very nice body and fuze as well always nice to see.

    Does it have the hole in the base on this one??

    regards Kev

    Who knows bud but i do have others which are realy faintly stamped,
    unlike the screw in type charge where they were almost cast into the steel.

    Hi Phil,

    I agree, I have a bayonet body that just had Bk on the side nothing else, very faint too!!

    Nice to find a decent one without the hole in the bottom!! Good find Phil.

    regards Kev
