INERT DEACTIVATED. Rare British No 15 Mk1 (Cricket Ball or Ball) Hand/Catapult/Spring Gun Grenade. O 1390 - O 1390

INERT DEACTIVATED. This is a rare British No 15 Mk1 (Cricket Ball or Ball) Hand/Catapult/Spring Gun Grenade introduced as an emergency hand grenade in May 1915 due to the shortage of Mills grenades. The grenade was used on all fronts including the Gallipoli campaign. The grenade was used as a hand grenade and was capable of being thrown by a catapult or spring gun used in trench warfare. This grenade consists of a spherical cast iron body with a large threaded screw in plug which was originally fitted with a No. 8 mark VII detonator secured to a length of safety fuse. The fuse was struck on a brassard worn by a thrower who rubbed the composition against the match composition on the brassard. This is an excellent example of the No 15 mk1 hand grenade and is complete with its screw in fuse holder. No licence is required to possess this inert grenade in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. The price includes UK delivery. O 1390
