    Thanks for the replies chaps, Chris you have described exactly what i think its purpose is, and this is what i was told but used for basic troop training, it is very well made and has a military look to it in the way its made. I will check it better for any markings and to see what thread type is used in the conversion. I too have had many hash ups over the years! Best wishes Tig.

    That is where the ballistite charge fits and is what propels the bomb out of the tube. Or do I misunderstand what you are referring to?

    Hi infanteer, you could not fit the standard ballistite cartridge in the fin. Only a reduced length cart as per a saluting blank,not sure if these were made in this gauge? Allan,had a few 2inch lamps but this isn't one! no extra markings found so will Go in to the not sure box for now. Thanks for the replies. Tig
