    Second one looks like No16 British shape. Used by other countries (Estonia, Poland, etc)
    Any Live or Dug ordnance shown by me has been disposed of by EOD personnel .

    Just a guess, unfinished or made for a stick like Vietnamese grenades.
    Brass plug seems to be expensive !

    Example of NVA F1 modified with wood stick:

    What about the 'Mills' type base plug? Could it possibly be a half complete grenade that would have been filled with a All Ways fuze set?

    Well the Great War was a frantic place for development of the All Ways fuze, so it is probably WW1.
