British No. 19 Hand Grenade WW One

The No. 19 grenade is very uncommon in private collections. It was a simplified design to supplement the short supply of No. 1 and No.2 hand grenades. Basically a direct action impact fuzed grenade with the mushroom shaped plunger on one end, a wooden handle and fabric tape tails to keep it pointed in the right direction. A very dangerous grenade to use. This specimen is missing the wooden handle and tapes. The safety pin and ring appear to be from a later grenade and the shearing wire is reproduction. Comes with another artifact, a sectioned No. 19 body only.
