    Thanks Tony and Hoeksel for your help in this matter. A pity there is no firm evidence that we used it, but as it is a nice British-made case, I will hang on to it for the time being. All I need now is a nice unfired Vickers-made projectile for it!!

    Regards,
    Roger.

    And now I found a Romanian case that resembles the Vickers case. The case is 45 cm long and the foot resembles the Vickers case (compared to my Dutch cases). I am afraid the case is cut down (but extremely nicely, so I am not 100 % sure), but I will be sure when I find another one. At least I know now that the Romanian 75 mm Vickers case has the 75-26 marking.

    @Defender, I have the book but missed the pics you mention.

    The question in this document is asking if the ongoing production of ammunition for danish 7,5 cm Vickers aa guns used in Italy should be continued ;-) It seems there was some fear that to much ammunition of this type is getting produced because the author is asking if there are more danish Vickers batteries are situated in Denmark or Norway for which the >large number of< ammunition could be used.
