    BRITISH GRENADES: British & Common- wealth Hand & Rifle Grenades

    Does anyone have a copy of the book 'BRITISH GRENADES: Britishicon & Commonwealth Hand & Rifle Grenades’ if so can you tell me in what detail it covers grenade launching devices, more specifically grenade cups. I am sure it is a quality book as I have only heard good things about it, but my interest is specifically in the launchers and before buying it I would like to know how well they are covered. Thanks for any information.

    My copy is missing but it is somewhere in the house. It is a good book but the details on cup launchers is sparse. If I remember correctly, a few pages of pictures and a description. There is no list of makers. The biggest thing I remember is that it is the first book I saw that had a picture of the web launcher carrier.
