British hunting cartridges for the army. Part 2

Found these 3 rounds.

Kal. 12. 3 different colours, and it seems to be, this round have one, kal.12 lead ball inside.


These were issued to the British home guard units so that privately owned shotguns could be used against invading German troops had the invasion happened. The effective range of these would presumably not have been very far. They can also be found with the broad arrow and “SG” printed on the side, meaning they contain SG Shot. I am not sure if the colours mean anything or not. I hope this helps.

Oops! Did not notice this post when I answered the previous one.

As far as I know, the colours have no significance.
