    Very nice M24 Stielgranate rack! It is the type of rack that would be inside the 15 grenade steel case. The detonaters would be in two wooden boxes in the slots, and would be placed inside the grenades before use.

    Chris i missed this the forst time round , what a fantastic piece of history
    The gates of hell were opened and we accepted the invitation to enter" 26/880 Lance Sgt, Edward Dyke. 26th Bn Northumberland Fusiliers , ( 3rd Tyneside Irish )

    1st July 1916

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Super relic mate That bunker is right on the cliffs as you know, perhaps this rack was holding the grenades the defenders threw down onto the climbing Rangers. Really nice specific piece of history mate.

    I was at the ceremony at the point du hoc for the 40th anniversary of D-day in 1984 when Reagan was there with the Rangers.
