    1915 mle 28cm french fuse????

    Hi all,
    Does anyone know what type of fuse would have typically been fitted to a French 280mm 1915 Mle 'Mortier' HE shell of great war period?
    Just aquired a nice version of said shell minus fuse. (Fuse adapter is perfect).
    Thanks for any help chaps.

    Sir,
    You are a star! Iwas hoping for just the slightest info on this, so to have this posted is excellent. Thank you very much. Have you seen any of these fuses around? I get the impression they are not a common find.
    Thanks again.
    Dylan
