    re: Reccetrooper. Hello. These are clearly for loading/unloading practice, the boosters are actually wooden inside with a cheap brass booster housing attached. They are in poor condition but again, these are the only wooden Japanese training grenades I have ever seen. Thank you for your interest.

    japanese drill rounds_LI.jpg

    Here are two related Japanese WWII Wooden training pieces. The two rounds marked with red arrows are: Japanese Army 75mm Drill round with wooden projectile and simulated brass fuze. The case is dated 1929. The smaller round is a Japanese Type 1 47mm Drill round with Wooden and brass casing. Hard to get.

    I thought I would add pictures of a couple of wooden grenades I have had for years. The one on the right is more of a fibrous material than wood, but I thought I would include it anyway.

    I've been told various things about them but I'd appreciate the collective thoughts on age, type etc.
