81 mortar bomb

The mortar was just by the French, Italians and off course by the Germans as "Beute munition".

Out of my documentation I come to the following

French designation: modele 1935 grande capacity
Italian " " : Bomba 81 a granda capacita
German " " : 8,11 cm Wgr 276/12 (i)
: 8,14 cm Wgr 292 (f)
