    No.210 fuze for 25pdr air burst HE

    here's one you don't come across very often, a No.210 time fuze with the contour of a 117/119 impact fuze allowing quick change from impact to air burst fuzing without the need to recalibrate. This is an early one, batch 30 dated 1939 - they weren't introduced to service until 1940. Runs on a 60 second Swiss Tavaro clock. Shown next to a No.209 of similar manufacture.

    I have a similar fuze marked the same date 10/39 Lot No 25 with the 25 crossed out. 24667 also RL 5/40 2.
    I was pleased to find it and was pleased to compare it with yours. I have not seen the No 209. Very Nice.

    yours is a well travelled fuze Ron! See the other fuze under 'identification' which is akin to a 209 but with a horizontal scale only. Dave
