Hello everyone,

I am new to the site and from having a very quick look around, it's seems a fantastic place to be, share news and ideas.

I hope this isn't too much too ask from someone so new, but I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on an a curiosity I have had for some time? The image below depicts a WWI shell (c.1915) my younger brother brought back from France a number of years ago. At the top of the image there is a very small symbol that appears to look very similar to a propellor, or even that of a modern day radioactive symbol the Trefoil. I was wondering if anyone could subsequently identify this symbol and explain its meanings and origins?

Any help with this matter would be greatly appreciated.
