INERT DEACTIVATED. WW1, 1917 Dated Unfired German 7.5cm Light Minerwerfer (Trench Mortar) Incendiary (Brand Granate) Projectile. O 1358 - O 1358

INERT DEACTIVATED. This is an extremely rare unfired WW1 1917 dated German 7.5cm light Minerwerfer (light trench mortar) incendiary projectile used in the 7.5 cm Minenwerfer a.A introduced in 1909 as a result of experience gained from the Russo-Japanese War of 1905. The meinwerfer was originally used as a siege weapon but half way into the WW1 it gained popularity in the trenches as an infantry weapon due to its lighter weight and portability during an advance which artillery had difficulty in keeping pace with the troops. This is an extremely rare 7.58cm light minewerfer incendiary projectile with six pre machined alloy driving bands on a steel body. There are 8 drilled holes at the top of the projectile with steel sealing discs plugging them held in by 4 stab crimps. The incendiary round was usually filled with thermite incendiary filling and the sealing discs would blow out on contact or timing on the time and percussion fuse allowing flames to shoot out of the projectile to ignite buildings, crops or anything flammable. The round is fitted with a brass L.W.M.Zdra time and percussion fuse and is graduated from 7 to 24. The fuse is stamped L.W.M Zdra and TKD 1917 (1917 date). the projectile is stamped on the side 63 A 18 WD (monogram) Bk. The base is fitted with a brass screw in percussion primer to ignite the propelling charge and is stamped M and D (within a circle) This was a complete round and as a 'mortar' round did not have a separate shell case. The price includes U.K. delivery. No licence is required to possess this inert round in the UK if retained as a part of a collection or display. O 1358
