    Cartridge identification

    Good evening, I am trying to identify a cartridge base for a friend. I am Ex-EOD myself and have not seen this before but I think it could be either a large calibre flare gun or more likely a large engine starter cartridge perhaps for tanks, aircraft or submarines. All that is left is the head as you seen in the attached pic hopefully! any ideas please?

    Regards

    Steve

    I am no expert but it looks like a brass 4 bore case to me possibly a varrey pistol case.

    I believe 4 bore is about 1" diameter. I think I have identified it as a 1.5" Very Pistol Flare case from WW1. The later variants were 1" and also had a letter V on them. I may be wrong mind. A friend has some similar M8 American cases and they are 37mm
