Very nice Army bomb fuzes. Army bomb fuzes and Navy bomb fuzes are of different threads as they cannot interchange between Army and Navy bombs. Jap Army bomb fuzes have a hole in the vanes and the safety forked pin is fitted over the vanes from the top as opposed to the Navy fuzes that have no holes in the vanes and the safety fork pin is inserted at the side.
My mate Mick is big into Jap fuzes,pity he hasnt got a computer or he would like looking at those!

thanks for showing them.
