British No. 69 Cutaway View:  SOLD

6X8", Acrylic on Canvas, August 2002.

The No. 69 was used in World War 2, and was an offensive all-ways percussion (impact) triggered grenade. The cap was unscrewed revealing a thin layer of tape, which covered the fuze. The user threw the grenade, the tape peeled away and armed the fuze.
