    Hello,
    I was wondering if anyone could help me to identify a shell which was of my grand-grand father.
    The shell seems from an anti-aircraft gun and carries the following markings:
    3.7 Gun ( with under this text the letter I )
    further I find : CF
    next : DB/C
    the year : 1943
    and LOT 1460

    It would be nice to see in which gun it has been used, as I want to put the wright picture next to it.

    Thanks for your help guy's.

    Kind regards,
