Thanks man ! i use trademe a lot for things to got some good stuff there ! ,btw you have a great collection i really want something like that im 16 mine ain't even half that good haha ,and thanks for the help !
I love the side cap and BD.
Any chance you could show the liners
I also have a couple of NZ BDs
Nice collection jarrenb... Can you provide more info on the Mills Bomb (maker, practice/inert-live etc)...
Best regards, Thanos.
I have identified the maker using this very helpful website I came across: New Page 1
The Maker is Booth McDonald and it was made in Christchurch, New Zealand.
It has the markings "No. 36M Mk. 1." & "M P 10-40" on the base. On the front is has the letters "BM" (Booth McDonald) and is dated 1941.
I'm of the belief that this was a fully functioning grenade that has been made inert, but I'm not certain. It is however safe and the pin can be removed and the base unscrewed.
I have been told the grenades produced within NZ during the war that were not used continued use with the Army into the 1950's before being disposed of.
Mills Bomb again, for your reference:
nice collection mate
