    Default Just some of my collection

    Heres an older photo of a part of my collection..I have over 130 of these things now..including about 30 No 69s..love these things..since the top photo was taken I have picked up some No 5s and 23s..and a bunch more Battys and Loos types...gotta love a WW1 Grenade that uses a lit fuse to make it work!!!
    Always looking for more!!!

    Please notice the WW2 RCAF leather Flying Helmet and Mask on the 64 pound cannonball at the top right...gotta get a dummy head for that sometime. LOL

    Well I have heard it stands for the maker of these..and as I understand there was only one company that made the No 69s..however I have also been told that it stands for the explosive filler.
    Regardless these are not that common..you wouldn't think that looking at all of mine..I think I have over 40 now.
    But whos counting!! LOL
    Always looking for more of these types of things..if the price is right!!!
