Argonne forest, German egg grenade

Officially a German Eierhandgranate Mle.1917Na – a lightweight hand grenade introduced in 1917 in responce to the need for something more portable than the heavy Kugel and less cumbersome than stick types and that could be thrown greater distances.


This one appears not to have its fuse fitted, so may not have been used – but I was not going to disturb it!
