Hi Bob,

L3A1 is the british practice grenade, I think the screw in fuse/ handle top has slots either side of the flange that this  would fit into. but I may be wrong!......

Grenades do not have fuse that are 'Set' They are inserted.  A 'setter' tool such as above, would be for a Mortar.

Also the designation Fuse Setter, Hand L3A1. May well be the designation for the actual Tool.

I have never heard of a new 60 mm Mortar. The tool was rusty when I discovered it a few days ago so its not new.
