Checked my files don't have US torpedo lettering, but the crate markings may be the samesize But this is not a problem as I have the FONT. I cut a stencil and popped it onto a length of raj-rif's pipe as it it the correct size near enough (2.1), but lettering size didn't look right, so I have asked a chap in the States for the correct size, awaiting reply, or has anybody got the correct size? I PM's Cret to see if he has any info on the Brit 2 inch, as his pictures are of the 1.5 inch, (1945?). No reply as yet. Anybody in with RE Museum as they may be able to help?

Hello

Unfortunally we have a delay with the production of the replica's.
It will take a extra couple of months.
The colour of the bangalore's is Black, the nozes and fuze ends are bronze green.

Greetings

Crets
