    While well known, there are very few references. Lazy Dog seems to be the common accepted name, though one reference identifies this specifically a shape/type 2B. I've got a number of minor variations, but have seen no reference to any other identification.
    All dug or live ordnance shown in my posts is under EOD control and has been or will be dealt with accordingly by EOD personnel

    Yes these are most commonly known as Lazy Dogs and less commonly 'Yellow Dogs'; I've never seen an official nomenclature but the dispenser was the Mark 44 (I read these were also thrown out of helicopters from buckets??). You used to pick these up very cheaply... I've a couple cast ones and a couple turned ones - I was led to believe former are earlier (WW2, Korean War) and latter were later (Vietnam).

    i think the correct title is lethal dart,the name lazy dog was a cover name to hide its real purpose

    The projectiles shown above contain a different (much thinner) type of flechette, the kind used in US 'Beehive' rounds.

    30 years ago, during a visit in the USA, I found these exactly same darts in a bowl on the counter of surplus store. They were offered for 50 cents or a $ a piece. The shopkeeper explained that these came from a Vietnamwar bombcontainer. I bought a few, which I all, exept one, gave away as presents to friends. By the way, these had a thin black laquer coating.
