World War II 20mm Naval Ordnance


Recommended Posts

Hello Forum, New member with some ordnance from wife's uncle, Navy Warrant Officer on PT Boats. KIA 12/30/1944. Unsure if they are armor piercing or tracer shells.

The holes drilled through the cartridge cases and the absence of a primer indicates that these were inert, dummy training rounds, not AP or Tracer.

Thank you Mr Flick. They are stamped 1944 and 1942. The different colored head was why I thought they were AP or Tracer. Appreciate you input 


Regards, Ed
