Discharger, Grenade, Rifle, No. 1 Mk I. H.W. Ward & Co., Ltd. Birmingham. Adopted in the List of Changes in August 1917, the Mk I Grenade Discharger began to appear on the Western Front in September 1917. It was produced by eight contractors including H.W. Ward & Co. Ltd. of Birmingham who was one of the smallest of the contractors. This is the correct WW I discharger for the SMLE. It comes with a correctly marked S&B base also marked "H.W.W. & Co. Ltd". It is very unusual to find both cup and base made by the same manufacturer. Overall about 90% blue. A rare and authentic item. CANNOT BE SHIPPED TO CALIFORNIA.
