Remembered Today:

French grenade?


Recommended Posts

As Paul says it's a French Citron (lemon for obvious reasons) Foug model 1916. Simple little grenade, wooden plug with spring loaded percussion fuse, non automatic - bang it on your boot type. Would have had a tin cover or 'chapeau' to act as a safety, like many French grenades really rather unsafe...
