    Russian Navy, but I would say this is APHE. Bottom plug may contain an internal fuze. I had a 47 mm Russian round with similar looking base fuze with no markings on outside.

    Nice to see the Dutch projectiles. Do you also have original Dutch cases (HEMBRUG) or export only?
    Ignorance is bliss.

    Only 1, the youngest. Finding Dutch rounds is hard, as John Roks told me that they imported ammunition from all sources and most can be confused with other countries.Only European countries harder to get examples are Denmark(0) and Italy(4). I welcome offers from all countries.

    I have two Dutch rounds, the Penetrating came locally in a Hotchkiss case, the PD I put in a Hotchkiss case. German or Dutch cases for these are impossible to find over here.
    The penetrating has an internal Hotchkiss pattern fuze.
