The 3 inch Mortar was the standard mortar used by the British Army in WWII. It was introduced in the early 1930’s after superseding the Stokes mortar and remained in use until the late 1960’s when it was replaced by the L16 81mm mortar.
This 3 inch shell is very scarce and this is in excellent condition. Fully ordnance stamped with a clear 1941 date. The bomb has been deactivated and can be stripped. A fine example.
