    Norman, it's good to have it confirmed that I was on the right track.

    Probably worth adding that anyone referring to the widely available Treatise of Ammunition 1915 are not going to find much about amatol, as the various mixtures were developed and adopted after its publication.

    Quite so Tom.

    For those that look out for such things:

    Of very marginal use is the Addendum to the Treatise of Ammunition 1917/18.
    Two editions (1917 and 1918) of the "Explanatory List of Service Markings" are very informative.
    Also "Notes on Naval Ammunition 1917".

    The Canton provenance is likely correct as the projectile came out of the U.S.
    Thanks for the useful comments.
