WW1 Stokes Mortar Bomb

CN133 - WW1 Stokes Mortar Bomb
Designed in 1915 by F.W.C. Stokes, it was brought immediately into service in France to counter the German minenwerfer. The weapon was ideally suited to trench warfare on account of being able to drop a shell at a very steep angle from the safety of a trench with low recoil. It proved to be a very effective weapon and skilled crews could drop approximately 20 rounds a minute. The Stokes remained in service till 1936.

This example is 1917 dated and was found in the High Wood area of the Somme. It is in a good solid condition, deactivated with operating parts in tact and some original paintwork still intact. A scarce WW1 Stokes motar bomb from the Somme.

WW1 M1916 German Granatenwerfer round

RJ046 - WW1 M1916 German Granatenwerfer round

The bomb made a distinctive warbling sound when fired and with its thick fragmented body delivered a powerful explosion when it struck. The bomb is in very good condition with no pitting to the body or the fins, it is only missing its striker. It still disassembles allowing the insides to be seen. A good addition to any WW1 ordnance collection.

WW1 Russian M1917 Gas Grenade

RJ042 - WW1 Inert Russian M1917 Gas Grenade
Very rare First World War Russian gas stick-grenade. The weapon contained 500g of Chloropicrin a powerful tear-gas/lachrymator agent that could penetrate most gas mask filters and forced troops to remove their masks. The chemical payload would have been enough to kill or incapacitate all the troops in a small dug-out or bunker. The grenade has a triangular tin plate bearing a skull and cross-bones with the word Chemical embossed on it in Cyrillic lettering. The tin body is soldered shut to provide an air-tight seal and has a double-safety to avoid mishaps. The item is in very good condition for it’s age and still has all of its mechanism and original paint. Since they contained chemical agents very few of these grenades have survived as most were simply dumped or destroyed after the war to avoid contamination, it is therefore a very rare item. A must-have for the WW1 Eastern Front/gas-warfare collector.

WW1 German 76mm Minenwerfer Message Round

RJ045 - WW1 German 76mm Minenwerfer Message Round
An exceptionally rare First World War signal round for the 76mm Minenwerfer. The 76mm was the lightest of Germany’s 3 types of Minenwerfers (mortars) used in WW1. In addition to high-explosive and gas rounds it also fired this almost unique type of message round. In emergencies when all other lines of communication had been severed urgent messages would be loaded into the hollow body of these rounds and then fired back towards their own lines. Since the “Minnies”, (as the Tommies called them), had a range of 1,300 metres they could always reach their rear-echelon areas. The rounds had the propellant in the bottom of the shell, the jet being vented through the holes visible on the base. This example is in A1 condition, with no pitting or rust. It still splits in two to allow access to the message compartment and is very heavily constructed of steel to protect the message within. Minenwerfer rounds are rare, and the message shells even rarer. In terms of condition it is on a par with the only other example we have seen in the Imperial War Museum. Very rare and in excellent condition, this is a fascinating piece of WW1 technological innovation.
