    Hi,
    my good friend has asked me to post here his question about the Mills he has.

    Please share any thoughts on the origin of the grenade.

    Thanks, Bob.

    I agree with Dave about the rusty example being a Russian copy of the No 23 Mk III but the centrepiece was smaller than standard.
