    It was intended to be used in the open without need for defensive cover (i.e in an offensive role), as was less destructive than the Mills bomb. It did have a slight problem due to the large steel ball in the fuze mechanism, which would fly out at random and could hit the bloke that chucked it It was declared obsolete in 1947.
    Yes, after you revealed what it was, I read up on the flash/bang.
    The ball bearing would certainly have made it ... interesting to use!
