    British Mines WWI

    Hello

    At the Museum depot they have found these items, with a note that it should be related to seamines from WWI. I can see at the markings that they are british. Are there someone here who know what it is?

    The penultimate item appears to be a base fuze - which one I don't know. (Might be a No, 12 Mk V)
    The last item is a "Fuze, percussion, base, medium, No. 12, Mk VII" made by EOC - Elswick Ordnance Company.

    P.S.
    The penultimate item is a "Fuze, percussion, base, medium, No. 12, Mk V" made by RL - Woolwich.

    Hello Tim
    Thank you for the information, the items was given to a local man from EOD personel as souvenirs shortly after WWI, when they removed seamines at the danish westcoast. Now I just need to find out what the two other items are.
