    Just guessing it is 3" mortar shell of British/Australian/Canadian origin.

    There are three distinctive features:

    -blunt shaped fuse with a straight knurling(No. 152?)

    -wide, single driving band

    -three double fins with two holes in each half(some versions - not all - had stamped those reinforcing ribs), rounded on both ends.

    One without stamped ribs:



    ps. sorry for poor english
    pps. it should be fins or vanes?

    Should things go awry, we might get equal dedication from recent generations of females, I have less confidence in the other portion of society.
    Note use of 'the' and 'other portion' as.........

    Nice patriotic advertisement; but clearly more staged than those I've examined.
    She is NOT wearing an ID Badge, particularly in a munitions plant............

    Glad they won't depend on what passes for 'lumber' today. Not so many, but we still run across these wood cases here and there. Intact. Sturdy. Legible. Operative.
