HAND GRENADES AGAIN IN USE
Deadly Implement Was Recorded as }

ORIGIN OF TERM GRENADIER
Soldiers Were Formerly Trained in
Handling and Throwing Hand
The use of hand grenades as an
implement of war dates back nearly
four centuries and this deadly weapon
remains today, as in the sixteenth
-century, one of the most effective
weapons of warfare, says a New York
"special to the Indianapolis News. In
the current issue of the United States
Infantry Journal, published by ofli
cers of that arm of the regular ser
vice, there is an article dealing with
:grenades, which is a translation from
the German military publication, Mil
"Hand grenades," the article reads,
"as an implement of warfare, date
back many centuries. History re
cords their use as far back as 1536
at ~ the seige of Arles. Up to the
close of the eighteenth century sol
diers were trained in the throwing of
hand grenades. They wvere for that
reasoni called grenadiers.
I* "The grenades were hollowv balls of
~iron or other metal, about two and a
half inches in diameter, filled with
powder and provided with a fuse,
which was lighted before being
thrown. At first there were a few
in each regiment, later entire com
:panies were formed, and still later
every infantry battalion had its own
grenadier company, which in the dlif

"During the war between Russia

ised in great quantities by both
ides, especially in fighting at close

i small, thin cylinder, about eight
nches long and three inches thick,
which were filled with explosives,
Ind had a safety fuse in the cover.
[f the fuse was lighted before throw
ing, the grenade would have about
nine seconds to reach its destination
:efore exploding. It did not, how
aver, burn long enough to make it
osible for the enemy to pick it up
and throw it away before it could

The rifle grenade may be fired from
an ordinary army rifle at any range
up to about 400 meters. The great

due to the fact that the explosion
takes place immediately after the
grenade strikes the ground before it

this grenade cover a semi-circular
