  1. I just got these images of the fusewith the gaine and the Shipping Container it goes in. There is also an image of the Type 88 Model 2 with an exploded gaine kaydees Dwight
  2. Thanks to Ed. Strazdes at Inert-Ord.Net the answer has been solved. Through research, he found out that there are four more Type 88 fuses. ED found four other “Type 88” fuzes: Type 88 Model 4 Instantaneous-Delay Fuze , 12cm &20cm Guns Type 88 Model 2 Nose Fuze, 12cm-20cm Guns Type 88 Small (Gun) Base Fuze, 15cm Guns Type 88 Small (Howitzer-Mortar) Base fuze, 12cm & 150mm howitzers These are navy fuses used on the big guns. I am still looking for an image of the fuse with the gaine. I would also like to purchase one if any members have one. These are really rare and there is no record of one being sold. Great research project. kaydees Dwight Brown

  4. Can anyone tell me or post an image of what goes in this Japanese WWII Fuse shipping Container?? I know the Translation on the lid says; Top row: Type 88 fuze, second version. Packing number: Toyo ARQ (the Toyo is probably short for Toyokawa, as seen below) Far left, upper vertical column of two characters: Powder. Upper band to the right of that: Type M66 Lower band to the right of that: Showa 16, second month (February 1941). Far left, lower column of two vertical characters: Fuze (primer, detonating part) Upper band to the right of that: Production date: Showa 19, 3rd month (March, 1944). Lower band to the right of that: Place of manufacture: Toyokawa Arsenal Two lines at the bottom: Caution: Do not open except for actual use or inspection. I have posted images of the Shipping Container and the last image shows a shipping container for the Type 88 Fuse with the shipping container in question. The canister is 6 3/4 inches tall and 2 3/4 inches in diameter. You can see the three wooden blocks and the felt. I want to thank any help in advance and will post again after words.
