4.2 Mortar (W.P)

Looks in good nick was it found in Chalk or Peat, the marking if found in peat tend to be better, but a bad habbit was to try to rub the dirt off this would also remove the marking because it was still wet,the next option was to leave to dry out in which case if on impact the casing had fractured you would get them popping off all over the BAC area( Bad on a Friday afternoon) best tip get some one else to read the markings.:tinysmile_grin_t:
