    At first I was sure I saw this fuze somewhere, and now I remember, it looks like a Schneider fuze with adapter for export (Serbia). Maybe you could compare dimensions (see diagrams). Cyrillics markings could match.
    I know different brass internal fuzes from Schneider with this kind of shape belong to the 35mm series.

    Burney Davis, I think your 70mm shells are fuzed with a similar device :

    Spot on Minen! The cap is the same as on the 70mm shells, the only difference being that the shape of the key slots are a different way up on each. And it came apart quite easily. Unsurprisingly the adaptor will not fit the 70mm shells that I have. Thanks to A1 for the lead and Minen for the final confirmation.

    Always looking for projectiles, cases, fuzes and paperwork related to Burney and Davis guns.

    Burney, the scratches in your photo look like the rotational marks made on impact.
    Any live or dug ordnance shown in my posts has been dealt with accordingly by eod personel
