WW1 US Signal Corps released photograph/post card of stick grenade bundle charges. These were often used as "bunker busters" when a larger charge than a single grenade was needed for clearing out deep dug-outs.
Hi Spotter. Isnt that picture a peach? Bundles shots are scarce enough but seeing one with 9 grenades instead of the usual 6 is a treat. Enclosed are the only other WW1 bundles I can recall seeing. BC1 is an RPC. BC2 is from Anthony Saunder's "Weapon's of the Trench War", BC3 is from Steven Bull's "Trench Warfare". These 3 pictures look like they were taken on the same day at the same place. BC3a is from an ebay sale of "Urfaust" (For some of the finest photographic images available on the net please be sure to search for Ebay seller "Urfaust".) and has just about everything going for it. BC4 is from a German publication entitled "Waffen-Arsenal" and shows a most unusual construction of WW2 bundle charges where Dutch egg grenades are tied round the central German stick grenade. Hope this post encourages other collectors to post their grenade photos. FNG
Nice pictures, i love the one of the soldier throwing a bundle ready with the steel sniper shield to hide behind as i don't reckon you could throw that very far. Ideal for throwing into a bunker though.
