THE MILLS BOMB WAS THE BRITISH VERSION OF THE PINEAPPLE GRENADEinvented in nineteen sixteen to replace the cane handled percussion grenade that was stabilised in flight by a long streamer the mills bomb came witha fuse(various times)and the cast iron casing fragmented on explosion of the device .one dangerous piece was the base cap abouot the size of a silver dollar and 3/16th inch thick it could kill a person easily.Most wounds in the Normandy campaign of nineteen forty-four were fram artillery and mortar shrapnel which would typically saturate the unfortunates body all over with tiny wounds.the branch davidians were fooling with pineapple grenades and when one empty hull fell out of a box the delivery man got the wind up and it led to the massacre.
