Second is a Hand Grenade. :thumbsup: My brother (who is a serving soldier) found this on the last trip. It was encased in silt and all sorts of pebbles. They couldn't make out what it was so he broke some of the silt away to reveal the Grenade underneath. Further examination revealed that it had not been primed and had a wooden bung in the top. The bung was in a sorry state and quickly fell apart.

Sorry for the bad quality of the pictures - taken on my iphone. This will give you a general idea of the War room. I'll get round to taking individual shots. The Web gear and uniforms take up another room. :crying: The Dark Green Fixed bail on the bottom is a USMC Helmet with a field paint and 1st pattern Hawley liner.
