I bought a French Buckingham Incendiary round at the International ECRA meeting, I was told that the bullets were supplied by the UK and the cases were manufactured and loaded in France. Would these have been Buckingham MkII bullets that were supplied or were they a special design/type for France.
Headstamp is AVE 7.70 P 4 -18
Am I correct in thinking this was
AVE - Atelier de Construction de Valenca, France
7.70 - .303 British
P - Brass supplier ???
4-18 - 4th quarter of 1918
thanks for any info on the contract or Brass supplier
