fuse id pls

Post by jeff82 » Sun May 14, 2017 10:36 pm

Hi all ..had a few hours at the field this evening ..dug what looks to be another fuse ..
Does anyone recognise it ??

Sorry about the pics I photo'd at field as I wasn't sure if it was iffy so I reburied ..
Its around 4' tall and about 3' dia .
Looks to be ally plate with what looks like a spring type part in the nose ..
Any help appreciated and is it live!! If not I would like to add it to my collection of fuses
Regards
Jeff

It's perfectly safe, and is free to a good home ::g
The bottom ringed segments and the gaine (the explosive bit) are missing, but it should have a number on for what type of fuze. Not too good with fuzes, need a fuze chap to help with exactly what it's for ::g

Regards,

Simon

Thanx simon . ::g .. I have dug plenty if shards of the ally type plate but never an intact one .. I also dug a seperate target a few days ago which is the spring looking section by itself ..

Not sure weather its relevant but I dug this target about 5ft away from a 4.5' round a few weeks back ..(the one I attempted to restore)

No.209 Mk I fuze used only on British 4.5 inch anti-aircraft shells from 1939 to about 1941. It was made in Switzerland by Tavaro, and no further stocks could be bought after the Swiss stopped selling arms.

If it is a Tavaro fuze then it will be marked "T.I.G Co." on the side towards to base. ;)
