    This could well be quite rare. They and other flathead shot were made specifically for use on short or small ranges to limit ricochets and tracers flying outside the range area.
    They were always kept separate in storage to prevent Practice AP/T, which were ballistically matched to the AP/T shot, from being wrongly issued by mistake.
    After the introduction of the Mark 10B SV gun they were not used as much due to the squeezebore adapter, but many armoured cars still had the Mark 9 to 10A HV gun and may well have continued to use the flathead shot.

    The pheon within a diamond is a "Material Acceptance Mark"
    The other pheons and initials are more than likely examiners' workmarks.
