I have been asked if I can supply someone with the dimensions of a 2 pounder shell. Any offers?

No idea! I was asked by a fellow club member if I could find out the details of a 2 pounder.

1 5/8" dia x 6 1/4" length this is the one from a pompom gun .

Yep, 40x158mm 👍

I vaguely remember my mum saying that she worked in a factory in Birmingham during the war making something for pop-poms. She had no idea what is was or what it did!

My Mum worked in a Bedford truck factory, stripping and rebuilding clapped out engines for the Army. She showed me how to fit new big ends and pistons and re-time the valve gear on my old Hillman Minx! 😉
She's still goin' strong at 93 😊
