50mm French Mortar bomb - WW2


50mm French mortar bomb

This little bomb has the appearance (to me) of being French made. The body is cast iron, painted a dark blood red and only about the size of a hand grenade. The letters


This is a 50mm WW2 era French mortar bomb. I don’t follow the French weapon too closely but should not be too hard to find on the internet. If you can’t I will find it for you.


I have that same mortar but mine looks brass? It has “SEP 40” & “M 39” stamped on the ring under the fuze. The body is stamped “FSC 29 40 LR” and “NX NX NX”. It also appears to have been converted to a rifle grenade? I’ll take pics if anyone wants them?
