I’m having trouble deciphering the headstamp markings on a QF 4.7” shell case. Can anyone help?
Now, the markings I do understand indicate, I believe, that the case was made in 1899, had cordite for propellant, and was refilled and annealed once. The broad arrow over the letter N shows that it was naval, but what does the number 20 below that indicate? Refill date? If so, I’d be surprised as I thought these guns were out of service by then. The other markings are a mystery to me!
