The Petard Grenade sometimes referred to as the 3rd Army Grenade. A scarce and interesting grenade from the early period of experimentation in WWI.

This Grenade used factory-produced components and a percussion lighting device known as the F2 M1915.
The inert 1915 version has a 37cm wood handle secured to the warhead which is formed from a 12.5 cm segment of pipe, wood primer block, complete with a wire belt loop.
This proves the ingenuity needed when tactical necessity had advance far beyond strategic planning. These were also used later in the war as supplemental emergency ordnance.

This Grenade was found in Ypres, it is in overall good solid condition. See pictures for details.

All inert Ordnance sold by Vigo Militaria and Collectables are inert and Free From Explosives (FFE).
