    ~ Rare WW2 Inert British No. 74 "Sticky Bomb" Grenade ~


    The grenade was one of a number of anti-tank weapons developed for use by the British Army and Home Guard as an ad hoc solution to a lack of sufficient anti-tank guns in the aftermath of the Dunkirk evacuation. It was designed by a team from MIR(c) including Major Millis Jefferis and Stuart Macrae.

    The grenade consisted of a glass ball on the end of a bakelite (plastic) handle.

    Inside the glass ball was an explosive filling whilst on the outside was a very sticky adhesive covering. Until used, this adhesive covering was encased in a metal outer casing.

    Due to fragile nature of the glass, not many now survive.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The grenades length is 9.2 inches (23.5 cm).

    ~ Condition ~

    The grenade is in good condition for its age and use, as seen in the images.

    ~ Postage ~

    UK postage is £10 or the grenade can be collected from our shop in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.
