nice one MB with the id ,,i was looking through grenades for it,
JTP although this is a 247 fuze does it still use that as its designated number in RAF stores or is it differently numbered ?,

Spotter the 247 fuze was used on the No 69 grenade. There was no reference to the No 859 that I know of...
??? i know the 247 fuze was used on 69s etc what i was asking was i thought i had seen the 247 fuze before in raf use with a different name
Yes Spotter
British tail Fuze N 859 & N854 are the same as for grenade 69
There are used on 4 lb Smoke and 100 lb Smoke
the safety cap is different and fitted with a wire safety fork
Used with container aerial bomb
Here a drawing and the text.
