Fuse identification

Hi,

I bought that fuse in Albert in the Somme, and can not find out what is its type, or event its nationality.

InconnuConique1.jpg

It is graduated from 10 to 250 (which is quite high !), made of brass and steel, with a 15mm hole at the top, 80mm high, base diameter approx 75 mm. No inscriptions visible but the graduations.

Could someone help, since I would like to add it on my WW1 fuses collection webpages (My WW1 fuses collection)

Regards and hope !

Bernard

Bernard, I think you have a 'converted' fuze.

The Direct Action fuze has been converted by the addition of a timed base.

Possibly timed fuze type 211.

Just a guess!

I may have a copy of the markings code. If I find them, I will send them to you.

Regards, Johng
