    13 pounder 9 cwt

    Case found today. 13 pounder 9 CWT.

    Does any one have a photo of the complete round ?

    Did it use the standard 13 pounder projectile?~~

    Yes, it used the standard 13pr projectile.

    There is a photo of the complete round in Hogg & Thurston's "British Artillery Weapons & Ammunition 1914-1918", page 228.

    Thank you Tony. Unfortunately I don't have a copy of the book.

    Any chances of a picture?

    Possibly only the 13-Pr Mk.III shells which were crimped just below the driving band? Or did they use also 13-pr shells with a crimp groove?

    The book doesn't say. Shrapnel and HE shells are mentioned, and the fuze on the HE type is quoted as: "No. 80/44 time over N0. 44/80 percussion".

    The projectile in this thread has since been mated with the correct 13 pdr 9 cwt case.
