WW1 FRENCH EXPERIMENTAL GRENADE

Sold to the museum as an experimental French grenade, no more is known about its origin. it may not be French and it may not be experimental as during WW1 soldiers on the front line were coming up with all manner of ideas for new explosive devices.

Your comments:

  • This does not fit as a grenade. It is more likely an anti-personnel mine. Pictures of the inside of the fuze, (or an X-ray) would enable positive identification.

    It is too small to be a Land mine, only 60mm across.
