Well, I say the abreviation stands for:

"5 1/2 Seconds Grenade Yes Boom"

Actually that is the unit marking for the 5 1/2th company of the 2nd Gebirgsjager Battalion. :lol:

Truthfully it means the grenade has a 5 1/2 second fuze and "G.J.B." is the initials of the company that made the grenade.

Hi Andy,

I think some makers are known. I have not seen a "list" per se.
