    Default British Mills No.36 Grenade

    This was an item I had fanicied buying for some years and I was happy to obtain this nice clean example with good original finish.

    The remains of the painted markings of the red "X"'s denote that the grenade was suitable for Tropical use, while the green band refers to explosive filling type. Overall the grenade has a shellac varnish finish.

    Of course, the fuze and filling have been removed to render it inert.

    If you want to find out more about these grenades, see these excellent websites:

    Hey Ade, I have thrown these live in my basic training, they use to use supplement the L92 Grens we had to give us more throwing experience (and get rid of the last batch probably)

    Nice one Ade. I want a Type 36 British but never encountered one that I could keep.

    Spotter, You do a really nice job on the cut aways. I have seen your work on another forum.

    I've been searching for a grenade to go with my banded enfield no1 mk3. I haven't been able to find much info on which grenades were used in the cup style launchers. Any help on the subject would much appreciated.

    Chris,
    I think you will find that just about all the 36 mills could be used in the cup discharger.
    The only difference might have been the time rating of the fuse fitted to the grenade .. which was done by the soldier anyhow.
