    British 4in Mk I,II and III case

    The British 4in series of guns has many different case lengths but most carry the Mark of gun they belong to. Pictured is what I think is a case from the start of the the line, the QF Mk I, II and III. The case is 368mm long with a rim of 137mm and is clearly separate loading. The primer adapter is probably original, as it is stuck fast! I think it is electrically initiated. I thought to include a couple of pictures against the 4.7in MkI to IV case, and big brother 6in MkI to III case.
