Remembered Today:

Ammunition Abbreviations

Recommended Posts



Quick one can any body tell me where I can find a list of ammunition abbreviations, I've been going through a few different WD's latley and I've come across them a few times and have managed to guess them in the lower level diaries but I'm reading a corps at the mo and have just come across the attached and thought I'd best learn! 


Thanks in advance

I’m a Gunner, GW obsessive and I’m just another rabbit in the headlights here.  I do know that  BX was the HE shell for the 4.5 inch Howitzer.  AX was the equivalent for 18 pounder HE shell...someone somewhere must have the relevant RAOC pamphlet that refers?

One suspects there would be some poor Staff Officer at Corps HQ asking the same question. This may help.....
