    Yes Brian, most interesting! Does Dronica 59 (Drew) recognise this (Spring Pistol?) Perhaps it is for use on deck launched torpedoes, when some British torp. had a primer separating device, so even if hit by a shell fragment while stowed, it would not detonate. Naturally, the Arming Propellor had to work hard to move the primer into proximity with the explosive. It was also found that a fully charged air chamber, if hit, could cause devastating damage!
