WW1 British Mills No 23 Grenade – No 23 Rifle Grenade

An original unfired WW1 Mills Number 23 Mk rifle grenade.

These mills grenades have been recovered by archaeologists working on an ammunition dump in France. They were discovered in the remains of their original wooded packing crates which had rotted away.

The grenades have been deactivated, cleaned, sand blasted and painted with a clear lacquer to prevent further rusting.

Most grenades have the internal tube intact, along with the striker, lever, base plug and filling plug. The pin and ring have rotted away and been replaced by reproduction items. Most grenades have the brass base plug, a few have the steel plug.  The steel base plugs are corroded. There are no rods with these grenades.

The majority have a 1916 date on the base plug.

The grenades have been laying in the ground for nearly 100 years and all have some corrosion and pitting on the surface. Most have good threads and all grenades have a removable base plug.

Grenades shown are a representative sample of our stock. Grenades shipped may differ from those shown.

Available for shipping to customers in the UK and mainland Europe only.
