    Default Training stick grenade?

    This training grenade was part of a collection I purchased some time ago, I am hoping that someone out there will know exactly what it is that I have here. The "grenade" is somewhat shorter than the usual German WW.2 stick grenade, but it has the remains of red paint on the head and at the top of the stick, which I know the ww.2 German Ub grenade had. I can't make out the stamp on the handle either, so anyone who knows or can help please let me know what I have.
    All the best from Jersey,

    Both of these are training grenades. M24 and M43. The M24 and M43 trainers were painted with red bands and the M24 with 8 holes drilled in the sleeve so it was instantly recognized.
    We have met the enemy and have learned nothing more about him. I have, however, learned some things about myself. There are things men can do to one another that are sobering to the soul. It is one thing to reconcile these things with God, but another to square it with yourself. - Robert Leckie

    This might help with the stamp.
