    I know what HE means, but what is PS and TS? S= Shell? P=Phosphorus?

    Erik, I can't check in detail at the moment, but I'm fairly sure these are types of shrapnel shell.

    I think a TS shell is filled with Chloropicrin gas (maybe a tear gas) and a PS shell is a phosgene gas shell but not really sure.
