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
