Hi Wouter,

All ok, did get my hands on the Ehrenrangliste der Kaiserliche Marine, which means tons of new information on all officers, especially on the ones serving in Flanders of course. Which means a great update for the British version of Marinekorps.

Just give a yell and come over.

Best from Johan

Hello Nolf,

Characteristic for German heavy naval shells : 3 driving bands.

The fuse is in the bottom plate.
