    According to the previously posted chart, my no 45 was from a 105, rather than a 20 pr but I found it amongst others in the bottom of a 20 pr armed tank! Obviously, 105 was a derivation of the 20 pr so a degree of overlap would perhaps result in later clips being used.

    No50 Mk1 b.jpgNo50 Mk1.jpgA final bit of information and 2 photos I copied from old BOCN threads (thanks).
    The clip No50 Mk1 & Mk4 is for which 105mm case?
    My clip L2A1 is for the 105mm FD How.
    I found clips No36 & No42 are both for the 6Pr 7Cwt.
    Which clip was used with the M14 105mm case?

    Hello.
    I don't particulary search for Primer Protection Clips, I take them when there are in a lot or very cheap on flea markets. I have around twenty clips for 18Pr and one for 13 Pr. The majority are going out the ground. They are not put away so I share today four, kept separate. For the others, I will take pictures of the different makers and post them as soon as possible.
    1: 13Pr BP Co Ltd ( I think , by reading the previous posts, it is British Pen )
    2: With the web lifting loop ESS D
    3: Also NECo C10 ( I think Canadian )
    4: IP Co. It has been given to me by a neighbour, it is with a ring. I don't know if it is authentic.
    Regards,
    Dandebur.
