    Is there any chance of decifering which place is 'Ce'?

    I have one original shipping label also - but its heavily waterdamaged.
    Would you be able to post a picture of the label please?

    Regards

    Hmmm - Well I guess I could leave them both as is... No doubt that portions of the original paint are readable... but the surfaces are not in great shape. They really need a good cleaning up to even be handle-able without mucking everything they touch up. I was told they are/were water recoveries...

    Hi Scotsman
    I hope you take the advice zünder has given you. The original marking are in excellent condition, too paint over them would be pure vandalism


    Is the head section all in one piece?

    Hey Paul...

    Yeah both warheads are in good shape structurally.

    Hi Scotsman
    Thanks for the label picture.

    They really need a good cleaning up to even be handle-able without mucking everything they touch up.
    It's a fine line between cleaning and doing damage so the best option is usually better to leave alone. The normal thing is you keep an item until you find one in better condition.

    Regards
    Paul

    The label belongs to one of the three doughnut-shaped explosive charges that went into the head. I know that they were enveloped in waxed paper and attached to the head's inner wall by means of tar (hence the dark colour of the label) but I've never seen the real deal.
    Could anybody help us with the codes written on the label, please?

    Scotsman, if I were you, I'd brush gently the rusty areas and then apply vaseline all over to make handling the grenade more pleasant. It will be a problem to clean properly the inner tail rod. If you devise any comfortable way of doing so, please, tell me...
