WTS WW2 Pineapple and Jap Grenade with provenance

Recommended Posts

WW2 Pineapple grenade with a hang tag that says "Inspected & approved 6-Mar 45 Lt O'Brian Ordnance Officer 135th NCB (L.E.A.)

and a Japanese Grenade with a tag that says "Inspected & approved 12-Mar 45 Lt J. R.O'Brian Ordnance Officer 135th NC Batt (L.E.A.)

The fuses were removed, fired and the filler was dumped and brought back as trophies. 

The Japanese grenade smells like black powder.

I think the unit is 135th Naval Construction Battalion which was on Tinian. Their unit book is at this link:
