Mystery plug


Well-Known Member
I brought this zinc plug back from Beltring but I've no idea what it's for. Diameter 35mm, diameter of thread 30mm, depth 15mm, depth of thread 9mm. Anyone know what it is? Possibly not even ordnance-related.

(And I must remember: cutting and pasting text from a WORD document into here crashes Internet Explorer!)

From your dimensions it looks to be a projectile fuze hole transit plug from a 40mm Bofors HE projectile.

Deifnately ordnance related.

Will submit a pic later.
