Well-Known Member
I know its Belgian...

Can anyone ID this mark on a 2" Mortar. Base is marked ML-2-IN. Mortar 8*
A.B.L. 51
SEM in circle
and a crown with letters....

Could be totaly wrong but done some browsing and ABL as far as i can find indicates " Belgian Army in French and Flemish, (ABL = Armee Belge/Belgische Leger) .Also could SEM actually be SFM which is the mark for Societe Francaise des Munitions, Issy - les - Moulineaux, FRANCE.

a round manufactured in france for belgium ??

SEM or SFM ?

MS do you have a complete picture of this also forgot to ask is it a mortar round or tube
