    Hi Robert,

    My Australian made 18 pdr cartridge clip has "No. 4 I" stamped on it, so I presume No. 4 is for 18 pounders.

    Can you put a photo on for verification?

    Regards,

    Graeme

    Many thanks Graeme. That is it. The I wasn't in line with the No.4 but just above it.

    Cheers,
    Robert
