**RARE**INERT**DEACTIVATED** WW1 French Percutante P1 fragmentation Pear Or Spoon Hand Grenade. Sn 18210:26 - 18210:26
**INERT**DEACTIVATED** There were several projects during World War 1 (1914-1918) designed around the development of an impact-based hand grenade. Hand grenades grew in considerable value for world powers of the period, particularly since the war had bogged down into Trench Warfare before the end of 1914. The Germans found some success in the field with their "Turtle" grenade and the French attempted to respond in turn with the "Pear" - formally known as the "Grenade Percutante Nr.1", also known as the "P1". When the war opened, the French had to rely on several foreign grenade types so the P1 represented a shift to a home grown product. Construction of the new grenade involved an iron body, smooth on the outside and grooved on the inside for maximum fragmentation. A lead plug was inserted at the base with the igniter set over the top of the grenade. A metal "spoon" was set along the side of the grenade and formed part of the operation process. A thin wire acted as a safety device that had to be severed prior to operation and the spoon-shaped lever turned up. Once thrown and landed (hopefully on its base) a percussion pin moved against the detonator to complete the desired result. In theory, this left little to no time for the enemy to pick up and throw the grenade back in the direction of the attacker. The P1 grenade became available to French troops in May of 1915 and quickly became recognized by its shape as the "Pear" or "Spoon" grenade. Accidental detonations were common and landing the grenade vertically was not always possible - if impossible under the pressures of the battlefield. As such this grenade design was viewed largely as unreliable but still saw considerable production figures for lack of anything better. Our inert, deactivated, original example is in very good condition. The hollow iron pear shaped casing has even patina and correct lead base plug. It’s alloy spoon shaped lever assembly unscrews from the casing. The original lever is secured to the casing by later cord which replaces the original wire which would have been present and is most always missing. The price for this rare, WW1 French hand grenade includes UK delivery. Sn 18210:26

DEACTIVATED INERT. Rare German First Type ‘Fused Stick Grenade Model 1916’ Stielhandgranats. (Stick Grenade) - 18210:13
DEACTIVATED INERT. This is a rare German 1916 Dated ‘Fused Stick Grenade model 1916’ ‘potato masher stick grenade’. This is the first variant of the German Stick grenade where the pull cord was held in by a waxed cardboard plug. This was later found to be difficult to use and arm so the now normal 8 pointed star screw cap was introduced. This rare grenade is illustrated in German Grenades Of The Great War by Patrice Delahomme. The steel body has a steel cap roll crimped onto its top. The explosive head is held to the wooden shaft by a steel collar which appears crimped and not screwed to the shaft. The steel belt hook is held to the body of the grenade by rivets. The bottom of the throwing shaft is reduced in diameter to take the waxed cardboard cap that would have held the porcelain ball and arming string. See German Grenades Of The Great War by Patrice Delahomme for an illustration and description. Price includes UK delivery. Sn 18210:13

**RARE**INERT** DEACTIVATED**WW1 French Bertrand Model 1915 lacrymogène Suffocating Tear Gas Hand Grenade. Sn 18210:10 - 18210:10
**INERT** DEACTIVATED**The Bertrand model 1915 gas grenade was used by the French army during WW1. The grenade had a segmented iron casing secured by steel wire and lead seal which surrounded a glass ball filled with liquid lacrymogène. When thrown the glass would break and when the liquid came into contact with air created suffocating tear gas. The small 2 ¼” diameter grenades were unpopular with French troops as the glass would often break while being carried and inflict the carrier and nearby comrades with the effects of tear gas. This is an excellent inert deactivated example of the Bertrand Model 1915 hand grenade. The hollow segmented iron casing is secured by correct steel wire and lead seal. The casing is hollow and its glass ball centre is absent. The price for this rare mini grenade includes UK delivery. Sn 18210:10
