    MkV1 Tube ,Vent Adaptor.

    I hope this is the correct name for this adaptor I found it in a 1918 dated 12Pr 12CWT Navy case.
    I have tried to find one with the brass magazine that screws onto the top for years. They maybe common in UK but not Australia.
    It contains a percussion (4 nicks in the rim) 0.4" Tube Vent I read as MkX1 (or is it Mk1X?) so looks like a WW2 re-use.
    The brass dome is stamped G symbol C for Gramophone Co. arrow 1 so it is a Mk1 igniter.
    The adaptor headstamp is hard to read. Fancy Lu monogram? V1 N.

    Most of the 12Pr 12 CWT cases I find have missing or cut-off primers so they will stand up. Very happy with this item.
