    ~ Inert WW1 "Centre Cast" Mills Bomb No 5 MK1 Grenade ~


    This is a very rare early type No 5 MK1 Mills Bomb Grenade know as a "centre cast".

    This model was produced only between February 1915 and September 1915. Its body was made in two vertical halves with the join in the middle. The body was then put on a lathe and the horizontal grooves machined in. The main characteristics of 'centre casts' are the groove running down under the filler screw and the fact that the body is circular when viewed from above.

    The base plug and its ring are later than the grenade.

    The pug is stamped with "No.5 Mk1 5/16" (1916), the patent numbers and "Mills Munitions Birmingham".

    ~ Condition ~

    The grenade is in fair condition for its age. There is loss on the lever and general pitting as it is a cleaned up dug out piece.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The grenade stands at 4 inches (10cm) High. It weighs 520g.

    ~ Postage ~

    UK postage is £12 or the grenade can be collected from our shop in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard....Read full description
