Slings in WW1 trenches
Feb 12th, 2013 at 11:04pm
In the trenches in WW1, a sling might have been useful. I could imagine a soldier putting a grenade into a sling and throwing it over the top at a target. It would dramatically increase the range of the grenade.

Did anything like that happen?

EDIT: this morning I feel so altruist that I made the research for you. Here're the topics about WW1 slinging:
Search "slinging grenades" and you'll get much more topics, referring to the Spanish Civil War as well.
