.303 Round Case
||Found on the LY PAO "A" Squadron
location, just behind and right of the right end trench.
The markings at the end of the case are "E 14" and
"VII". The "E" indicates that the round was made by the
manufacturers "Eley Brothers, Ltd., Edmonton, London,
U.K." in 1914. The "VII" (not easily seen in the photo)
indicates that the primer annulus was Purple,
the Bullet tip had no colour code, and the
Functional Type was light ball.
The round does not appear to have been fired as there is
no definite mark from the firing pin, however it does
appear to have suffered some other trauma.
.303 British cartridge with Mk.VII bullet in charger
clip and alone.
Found on the LY PAO "C" Squadron front line
trench location, at the right end of the trench line close to
the railway line that separated the LY PAO from the 3rd Dragoon
Guards on their right.
