Man, I wish my postman was that nice. Good score. And some fine picture takin' skills, as well.
It's always darkest before dawn. So if you're going to steal the
neighbor's newspaper, that's the time to do it.
Nice grenade! Not seen any BR marked ones with original paint left.
Is belgian grenade body always marked with BR or was there other belgian markings also?
I have about 10 of these,but only one has BR on grenade,others are marked with ATS.
Now i know what type body i should search for BR24 fuzes.
Hi .nice grenades you have.what i can gather is the belgian made body was marked with the BR but havent seen many comperd to the french f1 bodies which are more common . I cant find any reference to other belgian makers marks on these grenades .hopefully someone on bocn might have some more info on this subject as i also would like to know if there was.Darrol.
ATS = Ateliers de construction de Tarbes, France
BR = ??? I'll look tomorrow in doc !
Any live or dug ordnance presented by me has been disposed of by EOD technicians.
I have "French" F1 bodies from WW2 storage also marked ARE and other with a tiny ovale surrounding FA and some letter after this but I can't read it.
