Correct.
It's a 7,5 cm IGr. 18 Üb Al, which was shot with the 7,5 cm le.i.G 18 and le. Geb. I.G. 18.
The 7,5 cm IGr. 18 Üb Al is a practice shot, the reduced HE charge had aluminium powder mixed in, which resulted in a bright white flash upon impact.

Best regards,

It looks like a 21 cm Granate 18 with an A.Z. 23 umg.
And yes, that shell was used in the 21 cm Mrs. 18.
But also in other guns like 21 cm lg Mrs and 21 cm Mrs (t).

Best regards,

Zünder.

It is hard to judge without a scale but I would call these 75 MM HE rounds M 1918 for the 75 MM french M1897 field gun, or one of its clones. Source of the pic is KENNBLATER FREMDEN GERATS, heft 8b, Munition ab 3,7 cm, Dom 12-5-1941

Hi ROLAND1369. It is possible that you are right but I would say that the cases of the shells of my image are longer....
