22 Seconds

To set the fuze, turn the setting mark on the lower

required.

 

Action

     Time arrangement, on shock of discharge, the

detonator pellet sets back on the needle, straightening

the clips of the time stirrup springs firing the detonating

composition and so igniting the composition of the

top ring, which in succession lights that in the lower

ring and so fires the fuze

 

Percussion Arrangement

      On shock of discharge, the ferrule

set backs over the detonator pellet, straightenings the clips

of the percussion stirrup spring, the whole is then set

free to move forward on impact or graze and after

compressing the spiral spring, the detonator upon striking

the needle ignites the composition and so fires the magazine

Weight of Fuze 10 ¼ oz
