This teargas grenade was originally designed for use as a riflegrenade.
The top accepts "Striker Mechanism No.6 Mk1". The base has the same shap as the
No77Mk1
Detonator No.99 was used and therefore small shrapnell came of this gasgrenade.
To turn it into a riflegrenade, the normal fuze was discarded and "Tail Unit No.2 Mk1" was fitted.
This had the same fuze as the
No.85 Mk1 riflegrenade.
