DEACTIVATED INERT. Rare British Inert Instruct L14A1 Anti-Tank Side Attack Mine. O 1488 - O 1488
DEACTIVATED INERT. This is a rare British inert instruct L14 A1 side-attack mine once used in the British Army. This is the British version of the French MI AC AH F1 off route anti-tank mine. The mine consists of a horizontal cylindrical main body with a large inset plate in the front. The detonator protrudes from the center of the front plate. The main body is supported on two arms which are attached to a circular base with three stakes. The mine can be triggered by a 50-metre breakwire, command or electronically triggered by an external sensor. This mine essentially a uses a large Misznay Schardin effect warhead/charge which is mounted on swivelling stand which has pointed feet to locate it. When the warhead is fired, the plate is formed into a slug which is propelled by the explosives, destroying the target. Although the mine mine can be detonated by a tripwire, infrared sensor, acoustic sensor, or a time delay fuse it can be armed using an infra-red sensor. The mine is 200 mm in diameter 260 mm long and weighs 12kg and is capable of penetrating 70 millimeters of armour at a range of 40 metres. This is a quarter sectioned L14 A1mine and retains most of its original green paint and is stenciled in yellow MINE A/TK L14A RDX/TNT O61A CY 5/78 (ROF Chorley, May 1978 date).

The cover also has a lead to an arming/activation switch. The explosive and arming content are replaced by inert compounds. The stand for the mine rotates so the mine can be aimed. No licence is required to possess this mine in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. Price includes UK delivery. O 1488

DEACTIVATED INERT. WW2 1940 Dated British No.69 Bakelite Hand Grenade By DLR (Thomas De La Rue London) With All-Ways Weighted Fuse Tape. Sn 12781 - 12781
DEACTIVATED INERT. The British No 69 was a hand grenade developed and used during World War II. It was adopted into service due to the need for a grenade with smaller destructive radius than the No 36M Mills grenade. This allowed the thrower to use a grenade even when there was little in the way of defensive cover. In contrast, the much greater destructive radius of the Mills bomb than its throwing range forced users to choose their throwing point carefully, in order to ensure that they would not be wounded by their own grenade. The shell of the No 69 grenade is composed entirely of the hard plastic, Bakelite, which shattered without producing fragments like a metal bodied grenade. Metal fragmenting sleeves were available to increase the grenade's lethality. Using the No 69 bomb was very simple: the screw-off cap was removed and discarded, and the grenade was then thrown. When the grenade was thrown, a linen tape with a curved lead weight on the end automatically unwrapped in flight, freeing a ball-bearing inside the fuse. In this manner the all-ways fuse was armed in flight and the grenade exploded on impact and like the Gammon grenade, which used the same fuse design, it was withdrawn from service soon after the Second World War ended. This is an excellent original WW2, 1940 dated No.69 grenade. It has the correct Bakelite body with screw off cap and all-ways weighted fuse cord. The body of the grenade has its original green paint band and red crosses band filler indicators. The body of the grenade also has an original white paint oval cartouche but the number within is indecipherable. The base of the grenade is embossed No.69 I and D.L.R.-40 (No, 69 grenade mark 1, Thomas De La Rue London, 1940 date). The screw out filler plug is embossed with a 3 and a S. The top of its screw off cap is embossed 247 MK I (No 247 mark 1 allways fuse). The inside of the cap is embossed 4-6H. Under the screw off top is the metal weighted fly of tape. No licence is required to possess this grenade in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. Price includes UK delivery. Sn 12781
