    2lb Smoke Bomb ????

    Hmmm Unsure of the designation of this British Smoke bomb,,its of the same construction of the 4lb smoke bomb but about half the size so im assuming its a 2lb version,unfortunately i cannot find any reference to this size.
    Length overall with cap on 149mm
    Canister only length 113mm
    Width 59mm

    any additional information is welcome especially photos which would help complete this project

    Sorry, no ref, but I believe this is the 2lb I found in a rotting cut-away of a UK dispenser.

    Is the 2lb smoke the same size as the No83 Grenade? Externally, apart from the fuze they look very similar?

    Ive just measured the smoke bomb body again in inches and compared to what measurements i have for the n083 which according to the document are 4.5 in X 2.25 in and they are the same,,i guess they are an adaptation of the no83
