    Nice job Alan, now all you have to do is find 3 more fuzes for the other caps

    I was wondering ... were there any other versions past the MK 3 on the NO 390 fuzes? I haven't seen any and was looking at pictures of some of the different variant, and they all stopped at the 3.

    Fuze No.390 Mk.5

    Hello All,
    I realise that this post isn't about a cutaway but I thought that I'd show a few pics of a No.390 Mk.5 fuze that I've had for a while & fitted to a 4.5" Mk.8 starshell I have in my heavies collection.
    It's been fired & the aluminium nose cap is a little corroded but there is still enough of the turquois colouring & the description with red paint applied to the lettering to be able to make out what it is.
    The top two rings have BN stamped in them & diametrically opposite that is the figure 18. The lower ring with the graduations from 1 to 30 also has BN 65 ET on one side & 18 CY 1/66 on the other; the base plug also has 18 stamped into it.
    The centre ring is free to rotate but the fuze doesn't come apart; am guessing it's corroded up inside.
    Hope it's of some interest.
    Regards,
    Ian.390 (1).JPG390 (2).JPG390 (3).JPG390 (4).JPG390 (5).JPG
