    looks like the orange one maybe an 18 pounder shrapnel projectile... and it looks to have a No. 80 fuse but don't quote me on that.

    One of my great grandfathers circa 1916. He was gassed shortly after Passchendaele, but minorly. He served on the line for several days afterwards until the effects on his respiratory system forced him to hospital in England. My other great grandfather was also gassed around this time, and suffered from severe respiratory ailments for the rest of his life, eventually resulting in his death about a dozen years after the end of the war.

    And my great uncle, who did a walking tour of Italy and Sicily in WWII. He couldn't stand to shoot a gun for decades after the war, and rarely spoke of the things he'd seen.
