    I know that Primer Electric No 17 was used in the Land Service in Cartridge QF 20 pr Tank HE and Blank, but this is a Naval version and was used in all 5.25" AA gun cartridges.

    Primer Electric No 17 was also used in the Cartridge 120 mm L1 gun for the Conqueror tank.
    The Primer Electric No 17 was a naval design and the Mk 1 was only used by the RN.
