Shells on HMS Vampire

Shells on HMAS Vampire

Here we see some of the shells carried on the V class flotilla leader HMS Vampire. This is the 'sharp' end of the ammunition used on her 4in guns, and would have been attached to the larger cartridge containing the propellent.

This picture comes from the collection of the Australian War Memorial, and is in the public domain.
