This is going to be little help but when I was involved with British Army ammunition identifying a fuse didn't identify a particular shell.A British made fuse would fit several shells and sometimes across different calibre's.
Interesting find. The writing at least is Arabic. Couldn't tell you where it's from.
Greek - Horse shoe?
looking at the photos closely...there seems to be measuring system with Hellenistic/Egyptian numbers on the "horse shoe"? :o)

thanks Mikko, I think that is definitely the right track. It's not that 75mm though. The underside is different. I wasn't at all sure of the calibre, but now I think it is probably from something a bit bigger than I originally thought - 75mm would look about right.
These are Arab numbers. 52, 50, 48, 46, 44, 42, 40, 38 on the second picture and 26, 24, 22, 20, 18, 16, 14, 12, 10, 8 on the third picture ((reading from left to right). Don't know if that helps. Regards, Karl
