I think French, 370 mm.
The ones in front are a give away, Obus de 370 mm explosief en acier, mod 1915.
The disc at the front houses the fuze and holds the (here missing) ballistic cap in place.
Shot by the Mortier de 370 mm Filloux.

Yeah well, me and you. ;-)

8 Oct.: judging by the shape, the coloured ring and the nose plug: british, difficult to say exactly, i'd say 9,2" or 12".
10 Nov: i think french, 220 mm, but picture is not detailled enough for a specified identification.

RE; Sturm78 » 09 Feb 2017, 17:56 : Mbest guess would be 220 MM M1915 ACIER HE shell. Used in the 220 M1916 howitzer. I base this on the 220 marking on the bottom of the shell and the shell shape.
