    ~ WW1 Inert British Stokes Mortar Bomb ~


    The Stokes mortar was a British trench mortar invented by Sir Wilfred Stokes KBE that was issued to the British, Commonwealth and U.S. armies, as well as the Portuguese Expeditionary Corps (CEP), during the latter half of the First World War. The 3 inch trench mortar is a smooth-bore, muzzle-loading weapon for high angles of fire. Although it is called a 3-inch mortar, its bore is actually 3.2 inches or 81 mm.

    British Empire units had 1,636 Stokes mortars in service on the Western Front at the Armistice.

    The serial numbers of the projectile are not entirely visible any more. On one end the number "24" is visible from its serial number and the shock sensitive cap is stamped "ELEY LONDON, 2, GASTIGHT".

    The reverse of the lid from the sensitive cap side is stamped "C8".

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The mortar projectile is 18.5 inches (47 cm) long and weighs 3.84 kg.

    ~ Condition ~
