Tim,


thank you for posting those great pics.


One of them is scanned from a book and I think its caption is wrong because I know this mortar was produced in several calibres, all of them wider than 10 cm.


Thank you again for your answer, your help and your work in this forum.


greetings from the sunny Spain.
