I could not locate an definitive answer for you on this matter.

I doubt they used grenades.

They actually used the tin cans from their 'bully beef' meals,

and filled them with shrapnel, gunpowder and a long fuse. They

would throw them to enemy trenches as the fuse almost hit the

gunpowder and the shrapnel biits would explode out. This clearly

shows their resourcefulness.
