WW11 No. 36 GRENADE

This No 36 Grenade is fitted with a flat gas check plate on the bottom, and is a modification to the No23 grenade. The plate is required to contain the gases from the blank cartridge in the rifle, thus pushing it out of the cup releasing the grenades clip (the pin having been removed). The unit is fired from a discharger cup or launcher Item A0778. The No36 left service in 1972

Your comments:

  • A poor specimen in filed up relic condition with loss of definition. The pin is a replacement and the base plate appears to be associated.

    The brass filler plug (not aluminium/alloy) informs us that this specimen is of Great War origin.
