OF 37 Hand Grenade
A crate of OF 37 hand grenades is seen in the ammunition depot. The grenades are painted in blue, which indicates that this is a training version of OF 37. One of the teenagers inside the depot is seen juggling two grenades; later, he accidentally drops his lit cigarette in the crate, prompting Cruchot and Fougasse (Jean Lefebvre) to remove some grenades before moving the crate away. Fougasse and Merlot (Christian Marin) use grenades afterwards to distract the marines when the alarm goes off.
