Help with ID Please

Post by 3pinplug » Sun Jan 13, 2019 1:12 pm

Hi all
Can anyone help id this, the inside of the top appears to have blown out and it looks like there was a cylinder on the rear of it which also appears to have blown as well. Not sure if any otherparts were attached and have disappeared, It has some markings on it so hoping one of you experts can I.D it from this, the first numbers appear to be No.243 or N924 i can't quite make it out. It also has 1941 on the end of the clong code on the side.
Thanks
Mark

Nice find Mark, can you add a pic with some scale in view? Looks like some kind of plug/fuse maybe .. Liam :;@

Hi Liam,
many thanks, heres some more pics with some scale, it appears to be approx 6.5cm in length and about 3.5cm in width, it does appear to have been flattened a bit so the width may be a bit off. I have also took a pic of either in if that helps.

From the Imperial War Museum.
'British No 243 Mark IIN fuze (Sectioned), Second World War period (manufactured 1940?). The No 243 percussion (direct action) fuze was introduced in 1938. It was of the hammer and shear wire type in aluminium alloy for use in Naval 2-pounder anti-aircraft guns. The No 243 ran to three 'Marks' and was declared obsolete in 1943 but re-instated in 1946. It was finally declared obsolete in 1957.'

Likely it would've come from one of these bad boys.
I assume you live near the coast?
