Photo 9

Photo’s 9, 10, 11 – Data plate says M63 fuze setter.  It looks familiar and I’m sure it was one of many for time fuzes.  If you look at the handles, you’ll notice it has a cap on it and if I remember correctly it held batteries for a light that shined on the fuze while setting. Fuze setter WW2 and Korea probably.

Photo 12 - Elbow sight, Panoramic sight and a firing mechanism. The same style mechanism was used on both the 75 Pack Howitzer and the 105 split trail and the M52 self propelled 105. Same style different size.

Photo 13

Photo’s 13 & 14 – I’m guessing, but I believe this may be some sort of extractor of some type, maybe for rammed projectiles, from the rear.  It looks similar to one I’ve used for projectiles other than HE. I never extracted a rammed round in my FA career; we just punched them out from the front of the tube.

Appears to be some sort of slide Hammer.

Photos13 & 14 I think this is a bore extractor & cleaner Something similar to removing the riffling from a pistol.
