    My Uncle was a RCOC 4th Division Veteran who passed away in late 2012.   My cousin very kind and recently sent me everything he had that was military related so I have quite a bit of material to poke through over the Christmas period.   Since my Uncle was Gibbards head cabinetmaker so I am thinking these deactivated 20mm cartridges were at one time going to be a desk set.

    Sorry to hear about the loss, and good to see that they will be cared for. Those 2cm rounds do look nice , mine are sitting next to my 88mm casings.
