Making Mills Bombs

In this video we’ll use some brilliant newsreel footage from New Zealand to examine how the Mills Bomb (or No.36 Grenade) was manufactured during the war. We also take a look at the design and history of the No.36 which served for over 50 years.

Disclaimer: This video doesn’t give any instruction on how to actually make a Mills Bomb.
