I cannot find them in my makers listing, but it is only up to 1916.

You will probably find that the company you are looking for has the intials ATN as I think the DY part will refer to Derby, one of the Ministry regional inspection offices. For example, Rolls Royce's code was RR DY.

That may narrow it down a bit. Also, the initials on the casing will only be those of the company that made the casting, not the manufacturer/filler.

Thanks Tony

Very useful hint. I'll try to follow that up.

The round is a 2" Toffee Apple. The markings on the body are - 2" Trench Howitzer A.T.N.D.Y - July 1916

I'll try to post a photo in a day or so.
