    This is a British 25 pounder smoke shell which has been fired and is empty and inert the bottom plate is missing and you can see inside the shell and is very rare to find from the battlefield a shell fired in the heat of battle in Italy. The shell on its brass head remains has some of its maker markings and numbers pretty clear to see the shell its self is rusty but not to bad it has been very well cleaned and still retains a lot of its original colours and original green paintwork with the brass driving band nicely cleaned and is perfect for display or any collection. The shell was recovered from Monte Cassino the Italian battlefield of 1944 it was recovered many years ago and has been in a local museum since which closed down in 2015.A very nice relic from the very famous Italian battlefield.
