    Latest addition - Belgian 155 mm ?

    Managed to obtain this inert beauty the other day which is probably a Belgian 155 mm shell judging by the shape and size of its
    dummy fuze, and the location it was found (not by me) which was on a former army training area in Belgium. Overall length is 410
    mm.

    Looking for additional information and its official designation.

    It should can be a "Obus pour canon, obusier et mortier de 15cm A"

    This is the only info I have, yours is the first one.
    About the fuze, I think that is the correct fuze for that one and not a dummy, but that's difficult to see in the picture.

    Many thanks for the drawing. It is not a fuze but zinc-like transport plug. Would love to have a suitable fuze for this one.
    Have also the larger shell shown in the middle of your drawing (type 'verlengde granaat') but someone put a clock right through it creating so-called 'trench art'.
