Strange garden weight


War Hero
Tap with a hammer to knock the rust off
Didn't someone post a similar photo a while back...and the Police ended up having to evacuate his street?
Leave it outside a pikey encampment they'll soon deal with it
Instead of phoning the PoPo and getting it made safe by professionals, why not ask a bunch of old soaks on the Internet, that’s the safest thing to do. Utter genius
Fused Artillery or Naval round hard to tell..doesn't look like solid shot , so as in all things if in doubt treat as live. Put somewhere safe and call the relevant people.

chuck it in next doors garden and go on holiday
If this is a wah, then fair enough.

If not, please call the police. It would make a worrier like me feel happy.
Didn't realise this was in the NAAFI:

Put it in a vice and hit with a club hammer on the pointy bit, couple of taps should tell you if it is live or not.
Anybody I’d this, it still has a fuze on and is about 7.5 inches by 2.5 roughlyView attachment 412353
Based upon the dimensions it could be a 6 pounder. The photo shows that it is either a mechanical or igniferous time. The driving band is scored so it has been fired = It's a blind and could be filled with HE.

Call the police - NOW.
