I have been going through my fathers stuff following his death and have come across this Grenade. Now I think that it is a Mills No5 and made in August 1915.
I was just wondering if I'm right and roughly what its worth please?
I remember this as a kid 50 years ago as he used to use it...
No36 M Mk II
Body stamped VADIS I
Rear of body under the lever marked 2 F
Lever marked D.H.S.
Baseplug marked No 36 M II then very faint marking of SEG ? SFG ? /60 43
Center tube marked Z 44 SCR ?
Thanks for looking

Any chance to identify this one despite the damage?
And by the way: What does the 'V'-shaped mark (arrow?) in the center stand for ?
Howdy Gents, I have several 40MM US and foreign low and high velocity grenades (all inert) and was wondering what the approximate value on them be if I made some of them into cutaways? Are cutaways more valuable to collectors, or less than an inert complete round? I've seen a few go for quite a...
I'm still trying to get the feel of this site, so please excuse me if this question has been asked/answered before. I acquired a No. 16 fragmentation grenade marked with the initialsw DL inside of a diamond, and under that is the date 1915. It has its base plug, and screwed into...
