    WW2 German Propaganda Grenade

    Hi, this grenade was ground recovered and has been restored. They are quite hard to find in New Zealand, so are worth the effort. The propaganda leaflets were fired at Kiwi soldiers fighting in the Casino area of Italy. I hope they are of interest to you. Cheers

    Hi,

    Thanks for your comments, glad it was of interest.

    Andrew: I look forward to seeing the results of your efforts.

    Does anyone know what stenciling these grenades originally had?

    Cheers
    Colin

    To kiwicolin, all items what I have seen are no stenciled, but I am quite sure there must be some markings.

    To Borman, what can I say - nice finds from the mud
