As before but for those who like stories.....

 

These are from Loch Fyne in Scotland, just off what I believe was HMS Quebec (http://www.combinedops.com/Training%20No1%20CTC.htm) and were found in 20m of water (they are NOT live). Obviously live ammunition training took place during WW2 and we found both live (which we destroy underwater) and spent .303" rounds. In spite of over 60 years immersion, lying on the seabed of a cold Scottish Sea Loch the ammunition is in remarkably good condition. I imagine that the soldiers who lost/fired these rounds would never have imagined that they could be recovered and shown to anyone in the world who wished to see them.
