Grenade, Hand, Practice, Mk 2A1

Note; there was a small piece of the exploded fuze in the one on the left. I remember when running a grenade range with the practice grenades; we had to clean out the fuze debris from inside the grenades every so often, gotta love the Leatherman!
Thanks for looking, comments Welcome!

He backs up his info with directives and TMs. No way to distinguish later MK 2 practice grenades ( no threaded filling hole) from EARLY M21 practice grenades. A small point, but yours is definitely WW2. Later M21s used an entirely different fuze and body that had more knobby segments. It seems WW2 practice grenades were given an M number designation ( M21) late war instead of using " MK2 practice", which I have supplied a picture of the container.These containers had in them what you pictured, MK2 practice grenades, blue, with M10A3 fuzes. That said, I found it interesting your spoons are engraved M10A3 AND inked M10A3- yours spoons should have a black painted band?...all this said, the only rule is no rule in grenade collecting due to all the expedient changes in such short time.
