    Default Estonian Stick grenade- Eesti kaigas used by Soviets in 1941 year

    These are extremelly rare examples which was produced in the 1930's in Estonia, just a couple of thousands were produced by factory "Arsenal". The inscription is similar to the german- Enne tarvitamist sütik sisse panna, before use, place the fuse inside. The similar items seen was dated ARS 1932. Inside was not a good quality TNT mixed with ammonium nitrate, but very good to clean the grenades being deactivation. That kind of grenades was used with other Estonian army weapons and ordinance by Red Army in 1941 year, when the war became to the Estonia.


    A bit of history about:



    The old Estonian army stuff were issued to the Estonian destroyer units- or in other Estonian workers regiments, as oficially was named.
    The regiments was completed with Estonians, high kommanders was a Soviet NKVD officers. The regiments was fought against diversion groups as known ERNA group, and ( partly with the peoples who don't accept a Soviet rules and goverment)
    After the Germans reach Estonia the regiments takes a part in the battles together with Latvian working regiments and Latvian militia and builder regiment of Baltic fleet and some other naval units. Approximately 80% of the rest from survived- go to the USSR with other troops, another 20 % goes to the home/ forests. Germans never takes them as POW's, and executed them to sentence of death
