    Thanks,
    The field dressing is made by Johnson & Johnson Pty, Ltd, Sydney. And Dated September 1941. So no not NZ.

    Thought It looked like an Aussie made one.

    Once again a great little collection mate! Keep it up and you will be up there with the big boys soon ...you are already on your way as it is

    Luke.

    Thanks for that,

    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:
