British sniper

Article about: The grenade also had an optional cast steel outer shell that fitted over it to become a defensive grenade with fragmentation effect greater than the soldier could throw it.

    I believe that it is a British type 69 grenade i.e a flashbang/concussion grenade made from bakeliite with a weighted cord to prime the explosive

    Superb collection by the way

    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.
