Hello,

Newly registered & first post.

Trying to identify this cannon round found  very recently on Deal beach, Kent, UK.

A quick research possibly suggests Luftwaffe Mk108 30mm cannon.

Grateful

Looks like a mine shell, certainly, although the core suggests a training (inert) nature which would make it more likely to be 30mm Aden.
