WW1 British 18 Pounder Shrapnel Shell


Once a Fusilier

Recommended Posts

I am looking for a very good unfired 18 Pdr shell case, with intact drive band and screw thread for the fuse, I have one I picked up 20 years ago at Hill 62 outside Ypres and want another, I have seen some with little or no corrosion with the original stamp marks visible on the net but appreciate they are rare. I was thinking of returning back to Belgium so if anybody can recommend a anywhere/someone I could visit while I'm there.

The photo is one I have at the moment.

If you are going to Ypres try the Grenadier Book Shop by Menin Gate, they usually have a wide assortment of items
