    ~ A WW1 No5 Mk1 Mills Bomb Grenade ~


    The No. 5 Mk. 1 was the first version of the grenade. The explosive was filled through a small circular plug on the upper half, the detonator assembly was inserted into the centertube of the mills through the bottom of the grenade body via the baseplug, the striker and spring is held in tension through the middle by the lever that was held down on the lugs (ears) located on the top of the grenade body via a split pin and ring called the safety pin/ pullring. It was first issued in May 1915 and entered general issue when mass production caught up a year later in 1916.

    Our example is complete with the safety pin and brass plug.

    The plug is stamped ‘No5 Mk1 Elmbank Foundry Glasgow’.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The grenade is 4 inches tall and weighs 500 grams.

    The grenade has the expected signs of age with some amount of pitting, as seen in the pictures.

    ~ Postage ~
