    20mm HEIZ B MARO 1940

    Hi,

    Not exactly large ordnance I know, but I have a shell casing made into a lighter which my Grandad had with the markings on the base as per the title. always been intrigued as to what would / could have fired it? Any help appreciated.

    Thanks
    Tietze

        British 20x110 HS-404 - this 20mm HS case was made by Kynoch for loading by British Manufacturing & Research Co of Grantham, Lincs. Kynoch made 20mm HS cases for BMARCo from 1939 - 198?

              I must know it, because during World War II about 540 Czech pilots died in the RAF
