    L14 A1 F, any ideas on this one please?

    Can anyone tell me anything about this fuze please, looks like a proximity fuze and has experimental colour?

    It's got me stumped, nearest I can find is the L 14 fuze which was apparently a proximity fuze used with the 25pdr HE.

    Cheers,
    Andy

    It's one of Bonnex's (so to speak) - TGCo SR - EMI (The Gramophone Company) Springfield Road. However, it has also passed through FL - Ferranti Ltd.

    The castellated ring would suggest there is also a mechanical time element contained within.

    How are you mate?

    Not collecting ordnance anymore, the majority has been sold, still a few bits left to get rid of though!

    So even though it has the L designation for land use, it's actually a Naval fuze?
