Ordnance in photos

Attached are some old ordnance photos of WW1 that I ran across
1) The center grenade is the French 1914 "suffocant" lovingly labeled "stinkbombe"
2) Imperial German soldier prepping a hairbrush (petard) grenade
3) Really nice assortment of "stuff"
4)Western Front souvenir collector (like to have a shot at his collection)
5) showing offensive and defensive German discus grenades
Can someone I.D. "wurfmine" on right side of photo 1 (says it's French)
