Description:Brass bushing that navy watercap fuse adapters were screwed into. Other large shells with different fuses such as Archers also used the same type of bushing.

This one screws onto a watercap fuse adapter perfectly. The imperfection is there is a vertical cut in one side. I assume this was made cutting a fuse out of a ratty shell. I got this from Pete George.

Just the bushing is for sale here, not the watercap fuse adapter shown in a couple of the pictures for illustrative purposes.
