    4 fuzes ww2

    Hi,

    Found those in the fields where in 1944 Canadian troops shelled the Germans. 2, 3 and 4 look pretty much the same, the first one a little different (height no 1 52 mm, 2 and 3 +- 56 mm, diameter top 1 : 35mm, 2: 27 mm , 3 30mm).

    Anyone an idea?

    Thanks!

    Fuze 1 might be a British No. 117 fuze

    Fuzes 2, 3 and 4 almost certainly British No. 119 fuze.

    Fuze 4 was a Mk IV converted to a Mk IIIA (variations in the striker) conversion by Smith Meters, Streatham.
