BACKGROUND: Originally developed in 1915 and designated the No. 5, Mark I Mills grenade, this was later modified in 1916 for use with a rifle grenade launcher, and again in 1917 for an improved launcher design when it was designated the No.36M MK I. This latter pattern was used throughout the second world war, not being replaced until the late 1960s.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: The egg-shaped grenade, roughly 10cm tall and with a circumference of 19cm at its widest point, is of serrated cast iron with a detachable striker lever, fixed in place by a horizontal pin. The lever is held in place by a cotter pin with a steel ring. Body is stamped "FW". Canadian production.
