    ~ WW1 German Granatenwerfer Trench Mortar 'Pigeon' Round ~


    The device which used these projectiles was deployed by the German infantry companies and named the “Granatenwerfer 16”.

    This was a trench weapon which could throw a grenade up a distance of 460 meters. It was portable weighing 38 kilograms and extremely effective against trench positions, sentry posts, machine guns and other infantry targets.

    The grenade-thrower was first employed by Austro-Hungarian troops and was called the “Priesterwefer,” as it was designed by a Hungarian priest named Vecer. Seeking new weapons effective for trench warfare, the Germans began producing the grenade-thrower near the end of 1915 under license at Stock & Co in Berlin-Marienfelde.

    This is the grenade head without its wings in a relic condition.
