FROMELLES Random Selection 20 Shrapnel Balls Ground Recovered
Twenty artillery shrapnel balls recovered from Fromelles
A random selection of artillery shrapnel balls recovered from the Fromelles area on the Somme. These were held in iron shrapnel shells that when on exploding in the air were flung down on the troops below. They were also supposed to cut barbed wire with little success. Some show impact damage. These are poignant pieces of history from nearly 100 years ago. Sold in packs of 20.
