INERT DEACTIVATED, WW2 1942 Dated British No.68 AT (Anti Tank) DRILL Grenade. Sn O 1072 - O 1072
INERT DEACTIVATED. The Grenade, Rifle No. 68 /AT was a British anti-tank rifle grenade used during WW2.The No. 68 was an early form of shaped charge grenade, and has some claim to have been the first High Explosive, Anti-Tank (HEAT) device in use. The design of the warhead was simple and was capable of penetrating 52mm (2 inches) of armour in 1940. The fuse of the grenade was armed by removing a pin in the tail which prevented the firing pin from flying forward. The grenade was launched from a rifle cup. The four fins gave it some stability in the air and, provided the grenade hit the target at the proper angle (90 degrees), the charge would be effective. Detonation occurred on impact, when a striker in the tail of the grenade overcame the resistance of a creep spring and was thrown forward into a stab detonator. This is an original, inert, British WW2 service pattern DRILL No. 68 MK IIII AT grenade. One of the fins is crisply cast with No-68 ATI/L and 1942 is on another fin. There is also has a small ‘pdc’ mark in an oval near the base of one of the fins (A and F Pears Limited, Die Casting Co, Peterborough). Its body is hollow and its screw off cap has a black rubber weighted insert in. there are 2 x ¼” holes drilled diagonally in the body. Its integral fins are secure and straight. A bolt is used to secure the circular gas check to the base of the projectile.

INERT DEACTIVATED WW2 1940 Dated British No 69 hand grenade. Sn. O 1064 - O 1064
INERT DEACTIVATED WW2 1940 Dated British No 69 hand grenade was a hand grenade developed during the Second World War and issued from 1940 onwards. It was adopted into service due to the need for a grenade with smaller destructive radius than the No 36M ‘Mills bomb’. This allowed the thrower to use a grenade even when there was little in the way of defensive cover. The shell of the No 69 grenade was 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. The 69 grenade was the first British hand grenade to use the No 247 always fuse which was deployed by removing the cap and when thrown, a linen tape with a curved lead weight on the end automatically unwrapped in flight, freeing a ball-bearing inside the fuse. This early production grenade has a Bakelite body and the base is stamped No-69 I (No 69 Mark 1) and D.L.R.-40 (Thomas De La Rue London 1940) on the base. The fuse cap is stamped 247 over MK1 (247 mark 1 fuse) and when it is unscrewed, the weighted tape is intact. The grenade was withdrawn from service in 1947.

SOLD SOLD Experimental Rare Inert British 81mm MERLIN Terminally Guided Mortar Bomb Practice Assembly Round. Sn 1011 - O 1011
This is a rare Inert Experimental British MERLIN 81mm terminally guided mortar bomb practice assembly round used experimentally in the British 81mm L16 mortar. This round was developed in the 1980s to combat soviet tanks in a massed tank attack. The Merlin 81mm smart mortar round was a fire and forget homing round which would seek out tanks at the top of its trajectory and guide itself in for the kill. The mortar could fire the projectile from 4 Km away and would seek its own targets within a 300m metre square and at the top of its flight. The mortar would then start scanning for targets, moving tanks for preference and stationary ones as a second choice. The weapon only ever got to the testing stage and when the threat of Russian tanks declined after 1990, development of the weapon was stopped. This inert round is 91 Cm tall and has a green body with white stencilling PRACTICE ASSEMBLY ROUND . The middle body is painted matt black and has a 25mm blue band painted round it. The rear section is if alloy, freely rotating, with 6 fibreglass forward retracting type fins (1 is broken off) and a standard type mortar fin with blue paint on the fins, fitted with a dummy alloy primer.
