WW1 British No.15 Cricket Ball Grenade A first world war No.15 Cricket ball grenade. Theses were designed and produced in 1915. The No.15 was a time-fused grenade. It was internally fragmented and incorporated a 2 part cast-iron body.

The No.15 had been created specifically for the Middle Eastern theatre of World War I where it performed well. However in the winter European theatre when the Battle for Loos started, the No.15 was beset with problems, in particular the wet conditions encountered made the fuse almost useless.
