    ~ Inert WW1 Mk 2 ‘Pom-Pom’ Shell ~


    The QF 1 pounder, universally known as the pom-pom due to the sound of its discharge, was a 37 mm British autocannon, the first of its type in the world. It was used by several countries initially as an infantry gun and later as a light anti-aircraft gun.

    The shell comes with a brass stand stamped ‘Pom-Pom Explosice Shell, Reg No. 355754’.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The length of the shell is 6.5 inches (16.6 cm).

    It weighs 650 grams.

    ~ Condition ~

    The shell is in excellent vintage used condition, the stand is detached.

    ~ Postage ~

    UK postage is £12 or it can be collected from our shop in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.

    ~ The Pom-pom Gun ~

    Hiram Maxim originally designed the Pom-Pom in the late 1880s as an enlarged version of the Maxim machine gun.

    Early versions were sold under the Maxim-Nordenfelt label, whereas versions in British service (i.e. from 1900) were labelled Vickers, Sons and Maxim (VSM) as Vickers had bought out Maxim-Nordenfelt in 1897. They are all effectively the same gun.

    The British government initially rejected the gun but other countries bought it, including the South African Republic (Transvaal) government. In the Second Boer War, the British found themselves being fired on with success by the Boers with their 37 mm Maxim-Nordenfelt versions with ammunition made in Germany.

    In response, Vickers-Maxim of Britain shipped either 57 or 50 guns out to the British Army in South Africa, with the first three arriving in time for the Battle of Paardeberg of February 1900. These early Mk I versions were mounted on typical field gun type carriages.

    In World War I, it was used as an early anti-aircraft gun in the home defence of Britain. It was adapted as the Mk I and Mk II on high-angle pedestal mountings and deployed along London docks and on rooftops on key buildings in London, others on mobile motor lorries at key towns in the East and Southeast of England.
