    Bofors sub-contractor NP?

    I have a 20 x 145R Bofors HE cartridge (for the Model 40 AA/AT gun) that has the Bofors monogram as well as a joined NP on the headstamp.
    I assume that NP were a Bofors sub-contractor, but could someone please tell me who they were?

    Thanks, Graeme

    Yes, I was advised that NP = NORMA Projectilfabrik in Amotfors, Sweden.
