Informations about an English Artillery Fuze


Well-Known Member

Do you have, please some informations about this fuse ?

I think it may be used for a "Star Shell" , perhaps for the Navy ??

Thank you,

It's a No198 identical to No199 but only for Royal Navy's shell Star
A another fuze,the No198 C is the same with short intrusion.

I have a 198 III N fuze and it is somewhat different to the 199 shown, it has a thread around the lower edge to take a screw on cover and is all brass. 2pr
Here is a diagram of the 198 fuze.
