Here is a photo of a Grenade discharger round(A.K.A.)"Knee Mortar shell"I found at the last S.O.S I understand the red stripe by the fuse indicates Army production.The yellow stripe indicates high explosive.Does anyone know how many variants there were?SNLF etc.Anti- personell? Fragmentation etc?Thanks Geoff.

Geoff, I'm not well versed on ordanance but I believe there are quite a few variations. I know I saw one with a white stripe(?). I think one of the hardest to find is the smoke grenade. Another rare "sleeper" variant is the identical grenade but with a steel fuse assembly instead of brass. So keep on the look for one of those!

A very good design for special forces units if you ask my opinion.Limited accuracy tho.
