みなさん、こんにちは,

I am restoring a 50mm mortar round from the (Hoten) Mukden Arsenal. I still have to find the correct filling mark and I wonder if anyone can help me out.

I know that the fillers mark was usually the symbol of the initial syllable of the arsenals name usually placed in a round white circle next to the filling date. Bearing that in mind would it be possible that the fillers mark was ?

Please correct me if I am wrong.

ありがとう非常に,
万歳,
BOUGAINVILLE

I don't have one to confirm the markings, but seeing that the Nagoya rounds were marked with an encircled ナ (na), it may be an encircled ホ (ho) for the Mukden made round. I wonder if Doss or Mark Strange has an example.

Many thanks Edokko.

You have as always been very helpfull. I had the ホ (ho) on my short list as one of the possabilities. I think I will go with that.

Once again many thanks,

BOUGAINVILLE

Refurbished 50 mm H.E. Mortar Round

Hi, Have finished my restoration and repaint of my Mukden 50mm Type 89 HE Mortar Round. I was lucky enough to have had just enough faint patches of the original paint remaining to have reproduced it exactly as it was. I had to though ask for advice with the Mukden (Hoten) fillers mark to ensure that I got it just right. Many thanks to Edokko.

Cheers,
BOUGAINVILLE
