Hello Zdenek,

For future IAA forum posts, I suggest using Google-Translate, which will translate Czech into English for use on the forum.

Doc,
How is South Africa involved? Did it travel from US to Britain and then to South Africa?

Could have been issued to SAf. WWI Forces in Europe or Middle east, could have been sent to SA in Interwar period, or used in North Africa WWII.
Artillery shell cases were the ultimate " reloadables".

18 pounders lasted in service till at least 1945, by then supplanted by 25 pdr ( British “88”).
