    Default 10,5 cm Granate

    Hi,
    I have got this 10,5 cm grenade - it is 26 cm tall. Can anybody help by identifying it: country, age and for what use?

    Best regards,
    Ralle

    The projectile is incomplete.

    Yes the colour coding is a puzzle.
    The closest is the German navy coding grey-blue yellow-white. That would be the coding for a Psgr which this projectile technically is.
    German defences in Denmark had a lot of coastal batteries with many different guns.
    I think they were operated by naval personnel.

    On the other hand the H Dv 170/21 says the 10,5 cm Pzgr. Patr. 32 Lh4 is painted black with red markings like the land forces ammunition (the manual lists only the single KPS band projectile).

    We need some of our Danish friends to tell us what weapons were kept in the post war inventory and how the ammunition was marked.

    So in my previous answer I went only with the shape.

    Cheers, Bob
