My grenade

Yesterday my nana and grandad got me a ww1 grenade. The type is a mills bomb used by the British army and was the first  grenade to have the grooves on the steal case.On the top half of the grenade there is a small hole where the gunpowder would have been loaded in.On bottom half there is a bigger hole where the shrapnel was loaded both holes where blocked up with a plug that was screwed on.Mills bomb used the grooves so it had weak spots to blow up more Easley.
