There's a a guy on here goes by the name 'Flak 88'.

I know for a fact he's got a number of these shells so he should be able to help you out. :)

13 will be the type of filling (in this case amatol 40/60 poured).
SK 6 44 is the place and date of fuzing (not sure what the loaction is for SK)

The rest of the markings will depend where they are on the shell in relation to their meaning - any chance you can post a picture at all?

Can you also check is it definitely PR and not RP as the latter would make more sense!!

Cheers

Dave
