    Nice collection Tim. Funny enough you do not see these turning up very often in our country. PM please in case you have a duplicate you want to part with?

    Cheers, Jan

    Very nice example. The 37x57 M15 round is an unusually interesting one. There are over 10 varies of projectiles for this gun. The gun itself is a small interesting item, but it was not liked be the troops as it power was not adequate for the job intended. Among the projectiles used were bouncing shells. On impact. a charge in the nose blew the major part of the shell into the air where the main charge exploded. The "priest mortar",had a similar design. WW1 has so many interesting answers to the problems encountered.

    Still they were used after the war, I have a case dated 1926.
