    Small bomb identification?

    Hello all,
    Can anyone give me any information regarding a small bomb which I've recently purchsed.
    It's described as a German 1Kg SDI bomb with a type A313 fuze. I can't photograph it at the moment as I'm in hospital having had a leg amputated.
    The dimensions I've managed to obtain are, (approx);
    Length without fuze..........................14 Cms.
    Length with fuze...............................17 Cms.
    Diameter of body at widest point.........5 Cms.
    Fins Diameter also............................ 5 Cms.
    Fuze length OA..................................4 Cms.
    I would appreciate any info on this one. At present BOCN is great therapy as it takes my mind of the missing limb discomfort!
    Best regards, and thanks,
    navyman.

    Thanks munfrosch,
    I have looked more closely at the damaged fuze and can make out; ?Z 73 A2, and CM so it looks like an Az73, do you have a drawing, diagram, or section picture of fuze and or bomb.
    Cheers,
