    WW! French base fuze

    I believe this is a base fuze for a 75mm French shell, but which model? Does anyone have a drawing or picture of the sectioned shell with fuze?

    Thanks in advance.

    Always looking for projectiles, cases, fuzes and paperwork related to Burney and Davis guns.

    Nice and quite rare Schneider base fuze.
    My doc only shows fuze 27-35mm model 1917 with different safety device.
    I assume this one is an early model (made in 1912).
    Any Live or Dug ordnance shown by me has been disposed of by EOD personnel .

    Hi Burney !

    Nice fuze. I'd say the same than MINENAZ16.
    Is it strippable ? To compare internals with model 1917

    Regards,

    S.

    Picture attached. Does that help? How is it different?
    Apologies for listing this in the wrong section by the way, I can't move it.
