    British wwii timing rings, which ones ?

    I have a lot of timing rings waiting to be cleaned from British WWII fuzes, how can I identify which fit what fuze?

    I have a number of fuzes and apart from trying each one is there another way?

    I can certainly help once they are cleaned and sorted into groups of identical rings and measured and photographed. I the meantime, I have a
    problem with a box of dirty and sea recovered fuze bits - how will you clean yours? Depotman

    Certainly one of the two time rings that each No 221 fuze had will be marked `221'. Many are also marked `B Ltd' after `221'. The markings on the lower time ring went up to the number 22 and between each consecutive number the gradations were in tenths, similar to what is marked on a ruler. The time rings for the number 221 were about equal thickness, however you have others that are obviously deeper, from closer to the top of the fuze. I have one or two examples of the same but as yet have not identified which fuze they are from.
    Any live or dug ordnance shown in my posts has been dealt with accordingly by eod personel

    The ones I have are only covered in mud, a wire brush brings them up nicely.
    Thanks for the advice
