GRENADE – FRENCH CITRON FOUG M1916, BODY ONLY – IT NEVER WAS EQUIPPED WITH A FUSE ASSEMBLY: THIS HAS TRACES OF RED PAINT TO INDICATE PRACTICE ONLY. THIS WAS ONE OF THE FIRST FRAGMENTATION GRENADES INTRODUCED ABOUT 1916. IT WAS NOT VERY EFFECTIVE AS THE WOOD PLUG PREVENTED IT FROM BUILDING UP ENOUGH PRESSURE TO FRAGMENT. WE HAVE SEEN EXAMPLES WHERE THEY JUST SPLIT IN HALF. INERT (EMPTY), STATESIDE SALES ONLY.
