Well-Known Member
Today I was given a damaged inert Mills Grenade.

The markings are:

Onm body: CC at middle under filling plug, 3 under where handle would have been.

Filling plug: Z, WD over C, 3 over 10

Base plug: NO. 36M Mk1, C.C., Z, 40 on bottom face, A F at bottom of one tool slot, and D P at the bottom of the other.

Can anyone iD the maker?

Thanks in advance for any info.
