Markings

This page will give you the color coding and special meaning of the markings found on grenades, it will also give a listing of manufacturers markings found on grenades. If known, the manufacturer will be listed along with the marking, if not, can you tell us what it is? The page will be divided by country so if you have a British grenade and want to know the manufacturer, check here in the British table, if its not listed, send me an email to have it posted. When you send it in, note the type of grenade, country of origin, and the marking. There is no listing that I have been able to find to give this information, so lets make one. This page will only be a success with your help and input. Thanks.

Note: Where a marking is listed with the grenade it has been found on, it does not mean that the marking will not be found on other grenades.

If you can fill in any of the blanks, please send an email to:

Email D. Lynn

Lot Numbers

The lot number is an important factor in the identification of ammunition. It is assigned at the time of manufacture to a definite amount of ammunition which is assembled under uniform conditions and generally contains, in the case of grenades, bodies of one type or lot number, explosive or chemical filler of one lot number, and fuzes of one lot number. The grouping of like components results in a lot of ammunition which may be expected to function in a uniform manner during its serviceable life.

Orange band

Used on Canadian drill grenades to make the item more visible and easier to find underwater. Found on some Drill No. 36M grenades.

 
"Z" marked on components of a grenade. This means the particular component is made of Zinc.  Most often found on components of the No. 36M Mk. I grenade, baseplugs, filling plugs, and centre pieces.  Likely so marked due to the easy corrosion of Zinc.  
"XR" marked on the safety lever. Australian, XR marked on the safety lever of a grenade means that the grenade has been X Rayed after assembly to ensure that the fuze components are in the correct locations.  A quality inspection to ensure safety.

French Markings

There are certain codes on French grenades that give the type of grenade, used in conjunction with color markings it will serve to identify the grenades as to type.

Code Meaning Location
Gr Ma Hand grenade In designation
Gr Fl Rifle grenade In designation
Of Offensive In designation, eg.  "Gr Ma Of 37"
Df Defensive In designation, eg "Gr Ma Df 37/46"
PH Phosphorous in circle on body
Fum Smoke In designation eg. "Gr Ma Fum 56"
X Practice In designation, eg "Gr Ma Of X 37"
Lac Gas (lachrymatory) In designation eg. "Gr Ma Lac 59"
AP Anti personnel
AC Anti tank In designation, eg "Gr Fl AC 65-61"
AP-AV Anti personnel anti vehicle In designation, eg "Gr Fl AP-AV 40-F1"
Inertes Inert

These markings can all be combined to form the designation of the grenade, for example "Gr Fl Fum X 40-F1" can be translated as Rifle grenade, Smoke, Practice 40-F1

Erich has sent some information in on the various colours seen on French DF37 grenades.  We have all seen many different colour combinations and wondered what they meant, here is some information to help with French grenades in general.  If anyone has corrections or additions, please send them in.

Colour of  Top Colour of Bottom Colour of Markings Description

Warsaw Pact/Eastern Bloc

This is a listing of numerical designations for factories of the Warsaw Pact and affiliated countries.  It has not been possible to determine exactly which factories they correspond to, however the countries are listed.  Hopefully we will be able add to and confirm these as we go along.  Bold factory codes are confirmed to the best of our ability, non bold are not confirmed.  There are also non numeric codes to be found although none appear to be Soviet in origin.
