    My father was a dredging inspector when he was young. This weapon was put in my home for many years and I was told it was salvaged near the seashore where was bombed by aircraft from the USS Enterprise in January 1945. I wonder if it's kind of weapon would be used in air raid because I don't have much knowledge about military. Thanks!
    (It had been spray painted before and it is peeling paint now)

    It is certainly an empty mortar shell but agree with other posters, size not known due to lack of dimensions. Fin design points to Japanese.

    Kinda lost me there, but if I was s’posed to mention u by username, I’m terribly sorry. If I think I’ll misspell a proper name I’ll use another reference, in this case “other posters.” But u can have confidence that u R included in “other posters.”

    With grilled onions :D
    That is such a Jewish term, my Dad only commented last week about a Jewish family who lived across the road in 1939 when the air raids were happening.
    He went to help them after they were bombed.
    Whilst rescuing one another said "what am I chopped liver" LOL

    Yes...I'm sorry....now I understand....
    With so many folks pointing towards it being a Japanese Mortar....& many others commenting on the lack of dimensions ....& what with all the photo's to back up everyone's assertions....it would indeed be hard to single out just one member by name for a contribution that you heartily agree with !

    & spelling Komo can indeed be such a hardship ! :D:D:D:rolleyes::p:p
    Sometimes...in the heat of the moment...one can bring up phrases so ingrained in the time of our youth.....they roll off the tongue as if it's the only comment available !! :rolleyes::rolleyes::happy::happy::happy:

    My Dad also embarrassingly told me that he "Snogged" the 17 year old Jewish girl sometime later.
    I know the 17 year olds daughter, she is a very famous Jewish UK actress.

    My Dad said, "should I write to her and tell her I knew her mum"
    I said "perhaps not"

    At the moment we are related by spit :D[/QUOTE]
