Default smoke grenade

Hello,

I was wondering if this grenade is a good one or not?

Regards,
Larry

Hi.. Jens is correct with smooth sticks mainly for M24 but smooth sticks with a white band were used on earlier models. then the grooved handle cam into play, This is a matching stick to the can.

Hello Nick,
Resurrecting an old thread. Have you noticed that the stenceling is the other way up on yours, compared with the usual application? One of my ground dug examples also has this variation, but I have not many seen others, to my recollection,
Kerry.

I have a few smoke cans with different writing….top to Bottom and vice versa, and other Details. I do not know if this is depending on the manufacturer or year, but there are a few variations known.

I agree totally, my 1939 dated smoke has a smooth stick with a hand painted white stripe band and my 1941 dated smoke has the grooved end handle with a stenciled white stripe band.
