    Unknown fuze

    Hello,

    I found on the web (http://bremsurmer.over-blog.fr/pages...s-3873412.html)

    a picture of a damage fuze.

    The author say that the shell is a Star 4.47in (?) fired in 1944 in France by a British Destroyer (maybe HSM URSA).

    Graduations (22) and the cross suggest a british fuze (the 2 slots for the key suggest an Us fuze).

    Anyone know this fuze ?

    Thanks.

    Best Regards.

    Hello,

    It does look a bit like a German fuze, This type IW Mn Zdr2 from WW1.

    using a little bit imagination.

    If it is a 4.5 inch star shell then by my information it would be fuzed No. 206, or 207 or 215. If 4.7 inch then fuzed No. 207. I suggest you use the search facility for each of the fuzes and also for star shell to see if any are a good likeness.

    Thanks.

    I know these fuzes (except 215-never seen) but they are differents.

    Sorry "Collector", even with a lot of imagination it's not a fuze for 7.62cm LsprM.

    Best Regards.

    Looks much like a british mechanical time fuze like No.203, 206, 207. May be a naval version of such a fuze, the scale looks different?

    Hi Minenaz16,
    if you have the book of JP Luciani, "Les fusées mécaniques GB", have a look on the picture of the No 206 !

    Hello guys,

    Does nobody saw the fuze shown is graduated to 22 ?!

    Yoda, I know the No206 Mk1 (diagram shown above), the unknown fuze seems to be different.

    Several fuzes between no200 and no220 are missing in my documentation, so maybe one of these.

    When you look on the picture of the book of JP, you'll see that it is the same.
    The only missing thing on your unknown fuze is the middel ring with square notches.
