Hi Dave all Wurfgranate info I can find lists it as a WWII weapon. You is obviously WW! by the 1915 date. I'm wondering if that box contained Granatenwerfer projectiles?? Dano
I thought wurfgranaten translated to Mortar!
It could be the Granatewerfer as dan sugests.
Can you give us the dimentions of the inside if the box? That could help.
Dear All !!

yes the translations should be mortar but for the M16 Mortar the projektiles are to big because it is mention that the box had contained 10 nos and the M16 projektiles are to large for it !!

The measurments are lenght 50 cm widness 38 cm and the hight 20 cm !!

Dear Dano yes you are also right but it is clearly mention 1915 and a red line around the box i have no idear !!!:eek:oh:

best regards David
For me it's realy a box for Granawerfer ww1 first type stored in alternate ways up
Have you try to see for this
First type is too small than the other
Disasembled ??

yes i was thinking maybe the projektiles of the M16 were stored in it disasembled maybe ??

best regards David

But i would tell also that normaly the german spelling for Mortar should be more Werfergranaten when i translate this what is mention on the box it could also stand for and grenade which was droped by hand,, Wurf ,, - drop !!
Maybe realy for the Discusgrenades !!
