Hi,
I have some replica grenades that I want to use for training and practice throwing. I know the live ones were painted with green line and red crosses sealed in shellac etc, but were dummy inert training ones painted in any particular way, did they hace any other markings to show they were inert.

Thanks

I have seen training grenades painted white as they could be seen easily. I always thought, green line for live, Red for DP and white practise use.
