    Naval Scare Charge. A bit like a GP Grenade, in fact it evolved from such.

    A company near Hertford (cannot remember their name but they made 50 cal mounts) bought surplus stocks of the N8 mech. They used them on an anodised (blue) aluminium alloy practice grenade that they had designed.

    Hi Tony,

    This must be the Practice Grenade mentioned by Bonnex:

    I would be interested to know which company made the bodies and when.

    Cheers,

    Gary
