BBA096 Throwing Grenade

King & Country

A kneeling rifleman holds his M1 ‘Garand’ in his left hand as he prepares to hurl a grenade at the approaching enemy. Most infantrymen carried at least 2 x grenades with them... either the small, smooth-finish grenade or the standard MKⅡ ‘Pineapple’ version. The danger area was a nominal 10/11 yards (9metres) circle around the explosion and throwers were well-advised to be behind cover when the device went off!
