I have a WW1 cartridge belt with it's original ammo ( see my recent posting in Field Gear) and I have a question concerning the ammunition headstamp. There are about 35 remaining cartridges and they all read: "RA H 18" I assume this to be Remington Arms, 1918 but what does the "H" signify?

 

Any information would of course be most welcome.

Due to the extreme need for ammunition, Remington opened a factory at Hoboken, New Jersey and the H indicates manufacture at the Hoboken plant. They also made the .30 Pedersen cartridge there.
