Remembered Today:

Shell Jug


Recommended Posts

I have just received a SHELL JUG, WW1 Royal Engineers.

The Shell number is:

MGM 59 I 17 BX 75 DE C

Can any id the shell?

It is a beautiful jug, I am so pleased, it is one of my Christmas pressies, but I had to have a quick look :D

My guess would be that it's a French 75mm case manufactured by the Manufacture Générale de Munitions in 1917.

Technically still the property of the French Government, of course! :P
