    This is fantastic bit of Trench art with German bullet case legs that have been welded on the bottom of it there is also a scratched design of a couple of stripes around it the bullets have all maker marks clear to see the case is for the British 4,5 field howitzer it is pretty much undamaged not even much discolour the case still retains its brass colour lovely and clean. The case is complete on the bottom with its original markings and is dated September 1917 and the primer is dated September 1915 very clear to see the case is from a private collection on the Somme. A very nice and not easy to find British artillery relic from the famous Somme battlefield of 1916-1918.
