INERT DEACTIVATED. British Early WW1 4 Inch Light Trench Mortor ‘RML’ With No. 31 Fuse. O 1330 - O 1330
INERT DEACTIVATED. This is a scarce early WW1 British 4 inch light trench mortor originally developed during WW1 and entered service at the end of 1914. The mortor was fashioned from a 6 inch naval projectile, being lightened by boring the shell cavity out to lighten it. The mortor has a copper gas cheque on the bottom and three rectangular studs near the base of the projectile to engage in rifling of the mortor. A rifled muzzle loader (RML) is a type of large artillery piece invented in the mid-19th century. In contrast to smooth bore cannon which preceded it, the rifling of the gun barrel allowed much greater accuracy and penetration as the spin induced to the shell gave it directional stability. The mortor is complete with its rare alloy and brass number 31 Mk 1 nose fuse with an alloy hexagonal nose cap. The fuse was a modified British No 80 time and percussion fuse and the time element was altered at the lower settings by a small steel plate riveted on to the bottom time ring by three brass rivets. The fuse is stamped on its base’3/16’ (March 2016) V.S.M. (Vickers, Son and Maxim) The time ring is graduated from 0 to 22. The price includes UK delivery and no licence is required to possess this inert grenade items in the UK if retained as part of a collection or displays. O 1330

*Rare Blade Marked & dated 1st Type 1943 WWII U.S. M3 Fighting Knife and Original M6 Scabbard. 18891 - 18891
This is a first type, blade maker marked and dated American M3 fighting knife which is sometimes called the para leg knife as it was often seen strapped around the boots of the US airborne paratroopers. The M3 was issued for a short time to all soldiers in the American Army including the Infantry and Paratroopers, usually to those who had a weapon that could not have a bayonet fitted to it, like the Thompson machine gun. The handle is made from leather washers, and has markings on the blade "US M3 CAMILLUS 1943". This marking was soon abandoned for cross guard markings due to concerns that the blade may be weakened by the stamping process. It is sheathed in a scarce original M6 scabbard with metal plate on the bottom to stop the blade from cutting through the leather, diamond shaped rivets, metal teeth on the throat guard to help prevent the knife cutting the leather, strap fastening across the handle, belt loops, metal belt hangers and leather thigh cord. The scabbard is stamped ‘U.S. M6 MILSCO 1943’. A very rare piece. The price includes U.K. delivery. 18891.
