DEACTIVATED INERT. WW2 1940 Dated, British, DRILL, No.69 I Bakelite Hand Grenade By DLR (Thomas De La Rue London) With All-Ways Weighted Fuse Tape. - O 2070
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armed in flight and the grenade exploded on impact and like the Gammon grenade, which used the same fuse design, it was withdrawn from service soon after the Second World War ended.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 I DRILL hand grenade. It has the correct Bakelite body with screw off cap and all-ways weighted fuse cord. The grenade retains most of its original white painted finish and is stenciled in black near the base DRILL. 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 grenade is fitted with a dummy screw out primer holder and a white dummy fuze to practice fuzing the hand grenade. The top of its screw off cap is embossed 247 MK II (No 247 mark 2 allways fuse). The inside of the cap is embossed K36. Under the screw off top is the metal weighted fly of tape.

INERT DEACTIVATED. British, WW2, 1943 Dated, PIAT (Projector Infantry Anti-Tank) HEAT (High Explosive Anti-Tank) Round With Fuse. Sn - 21200
INERT DEACTIVATED. This is a rare British WW2, PIAT (Projector Infantry Anti-tank) HEAT (High Explosive Anti-Tank) round. The round is complete with its original nose fuse. The PIAT was designed in response to the British Army's need for a more effective hand-held infantry anti-tank weapon. It consisted of a steel tube, a trigger mechanism and firing spring, and was based on the spigot mortar system and instead of using a propellant to directly fire a round; the spring was cocked and tightened. When the trigger was pulled, it released the spring that pushed the spigot forward into the rear of the bomb. This detonated the cartridge in the base of the bomb, was then thrown forward off the spigot and if lucky re cocked the weapon for firing again. The PIAT possessed an effective range of approximately 100 yards. This system meant that the PIAT had several advantages, which included a lack of muzzle smoke to reveal the position of the user, the ability to fire it from inside buildings. The PIAT entered service in 1943, and was first used during the Allied invasion of Sicily that year; it remained in use with British and Commonwealth forces until the early 1950s. The PIAT replaced the .303 Boys anti-tank rifle which was adopted in 1937 and soon proved itself unable to defeating heavy armour. As well as being used in the anti-tank role, the PIAT was an effective way of opening doors on buildings at a safer distance and the resulting explosion was usually enough to subdue opposition in the building. This projectile retains most of its original black painted finish and has a yellow, blue, back, blue and yellow bands round the body of the explosive head. The black band has stencilled on it in white 808. The PIAT is complete with its original alloy nose fuse and screw on fuse holder. The PIAT round also has attached to the fin assembly its original 3 piece alloy fuze holder and spring clip assembly. The alloy impact fuze is held in by a bayonet fitting cap that engages onto 2 lugs at the tip of the projectile. The PIAT has its original hollow charge nose cone which is held on by a screw on pressed steel collar. The hollow charge cone at the top of the projectile retains most of its original black painted finish and has a ring or red crosses and dots round it signifying an explosive filling. The cone retains its original felt sealing ring under the screw in collar. The fin assembly has a round makers monogram and 1 43 (January 1943 date). The price for this round includes UK delivery and no licence is required to possess this inert round in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. Sn 21200
