    I have a "No5 mk1 mills bomb" this was dug up at Vimmy Ridge in July 2003 under 12 feet of earth, in all 2 complete cases of grenades were recovered, all were still mostly packed in grease, i did have a mk2 grenade that was found in a pond by my uncle and subsequently given to me after being de activated and drilled by an armoury, but unfortunately that was "stolen" from me some years ago

    the mk1 is extremely well preserved apart from slight outer pitting on the body and of course the lever is quite delicate, the ring and split pin are also original to this grenade, the internal tube has deteririorated badly and is mostly missing, as thankfully are any explosives!!! the base is stamped CAV 10/16 with a crows foot arrow and No5 mk1

    It does get some funny looks when people see it in my cabinet next to a US .30 calibre round i found in the grounds of a Montbourg farm house that had been the "home" to German paratroopers in Normandy France on D-Day, also an unfired German Mauser bullet retrieved from Utah Beach, and a .50 calibre AA round found in southern England
