Remembered Today:

Fuse Head

Recommended Posts

The attached photos are of a fuse head marked AMCO 3-17, LOT 208.

However, there is a marking which I can't read due to slight damage, this happened when the ship carrying this and hundreds like it hit the sea bed.

Any ideas on fuse type and on which munition used?
