    Default Hand Grenades

    Could some of the more seasoned veterans of reenactment share how their groups handle grenades? Pyrotechnics, foam/wood replicas, reputable sources, how to behave when a grenade 'explodes' near you, how they were carried by british/us/luftwaffe/heer forces etc?

    Specifically for me the most important questions (for me) are:
    How would a WWII British infantryman chuck a Mills Bomb? Would he yell anything?
    How many would he carry?
    Where would they be carried?
    What is a good source of foam/rubber mills bombs that ships outside the UK?


    Thanks,
    Martin

    As with all things living history, it is vital to use original training manuals. That way, everything you do will be historically correct.

    I have the manual.

    Cheers, Ade.

    "You can carry two Number 36 Mills bombs in one of your Pattern 1937 pouches. The other was reserved for extra Bren MAGAZINES for the Section's Bren."
