Description

INERT DEACTIVATED. This is an unfired British 2pr (40x304R) APT (Armour Piercing Trace) round for the British 2pr anti-tank gun and the 2 pounder tank gun fitted to early WW2 British Valentine and Cruiser tanks. The anti-tank gun was also fitted on the back of a Morris or Chevrolet lorry and called a Portee. During the war, the 2 pounder tank gun was used in the Littlejohn trials with the squeezebore 40mm to 30mm adapter fitted to the 2 pounder gun. Post war, the gun was fitted to the early Saladin armoured cars. The brass cartridge case is headstamped 2PR No2 I (mark i) RLB (Royal Laboratories) 1941 (manufacture date) LOT 1203 CF (Cordite Full Charge) and a crowfoot. The cartridge case is fitted with a brass screw in number 12 primer which is stamped No12 G/N 423 12/41 (December 1941 date) and a crowfoot . The armour piercing projectile has a hole in the base for the tracer element. See page 73 to 75, Hogg, British and American Artillery of World War Two. The price includes UK delivery and no licence is required to possess this inert round in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. O 2049
