German 27mm signal pistol grenade

Another drawing from the files in Leeds.

Were these produced (and used) in great numbers? It seems very complicated and expensive to make.

Peter, yes, they were. I assume most went to the eastern front. Today they are pretty scarce. There was also a whole series of projectiles which were similar but these remained experimental or extremely limited in production scale.

This one here is a development of DWM (in L├╝beck-Schlutup).
