Flare cartridges


Was that Mr.Very or Mr.Verey who invented these flares? Which spelling is correct?


The Very pistol was invented by an American Naval Officer named Edward Wilson Very, so “Very” is the correct spelling. What calibre / gauge are these flares, and what is the headstamp?


Headstamp: P.C. No.10. What is P.C.?


Vlad–P.C. is Peters Cartridge Company.


Vlad - The Peters cartridge company was based in Cincinnati, Ohio. “No.10” Means 10 Gauge, as these are the same cases as 10 Gauge shotgun shells.
