Case made by Canadian Car and Foundry Co., with date of acceptance inspection 25 July 1916.Filled twice with full charge, second time after repair by C Collins Ltd, B'ham, involving scleroscoping and annealing.

 

The No1 MkII primer is interesting. Made by Winchester Repeating Arms Co., USA, May 1915, it was found defective on arrival in UK and was rectified by R A Lister & Co. Ltd, Dursley, Gloucester in June 1916. It was used/fired and finally repaired by Kings Norton Metal Co. Ltd, B'ham in January 1917 and refilled.
