    First one french F1 grenade, second german Egg grenade model m42 (with rimm), the big cartridge is 25mm hotchkiss french and the small calibers are Lee enfield .303 and i think 6.5 carcano, but I would need bottom stamps.
    The last one wich has "pressed" body is manipulative for kar98k, german, war production.

    German egg grenade stamped with '43 evy', the small bullet is stamped 'W 17' and one of the .303 rounds with steel tip stamped with 'WI K1940'. The .303 round with purple on the back and the one with a part of the clip still on, came from De Panne (border with France). The other .303 rounds came from Diksmuide near a crashsite from a British Lancaster bomber. The others I just bought.

    Look at the red dots on the map.
    Thanks in advance.

    What is the headstamp on the one with the clip fragment on it? It looks like it COULD be an older 8mm mauser round.

    The stamp isn't visible anymore. It's possible what you said Zwerge. The germans fought there during WW1 and WW2.
