    A Turkish Grenade?

    Is this a Turkish grenade? I checked old threads and could not see a similar one.
    What does the raised lettering say? Iron body averages 74mm diameter. What type or model.

    Maybe Bulgarian. Or a copy thereof.
    Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.

    Yes to both Turk and Bulgarian. Possibly brought back from Gallipoli?

    Thank you everyone. You have answered my query. Ottoman. Turkey No3 WW1 Grenade. I thought it was Turkish but needed confirmation.
