These fuses come in a variety of sizes so it's important to include a scale/measurements within the body of the text. The requirement is that all finds submitted for ID should include this information.
Please note the content of the link below and add the measurements by way of edit to your text.

+1 for a No.199 fuze.
The No.199 was used on the 3.7 inch AA gun, so you should find plenty more bits and pieces around there!
Not all AA batteries were the concrete sort, some like the 40mm and 3.7 inch could also be temporarily mounted placements. The gun could be mounted on a wheeled chassis and ‘unfolded’ once at the firing site, leaving no trace of it having been there on the ground (unlike a concrete foundation firing platform).
