US MK1 Grenade


Recommended Posts

Finally added one to the collection and thought I'd show it off a little.

Always looking for WW1 28th Division; anything, papers, field gear, uniforms, etc.

I dont think that is a US MK-1 grenade. Looks more like a French F-1 grenade with a Billiant fuse to me.

Your right. I got it with a copy of Manual of the Chief of Platoon of Infantry. I guess I should have picked up on the French connection. Thank you for the correction.

No problem. That F-1 is still a very collectible grenade. The F-1 was widely used by the American Doughboy during the Great War.

 

Nice addition to the collection!!

Which is why I've been looking for one for my American display. Saw one in a collecting group on Facebook but didn't have the $185 asking price at the time. Sure enough, it was gone that day.

 

Very nice example, by the way!

Currently looking for WWI items, specifically photos of the 116th infantry regiment, and any material related to the USS Olympia.

Always on the lookout for any rations, miscellaneous personal items, pack filler, care package stuffers, knit Red Cross material, and oddball equipment to supplement the Doughboy display.
Have some extras? I help friends fill out their living history kit, and could always use more loaner gear!
