2-inch Mortar

The Ordnance SBML 2-inch mortar, or more commonly just "2-inch mortar", was a British mortar issued to the British Army and the Commonwealth armies that saw use during the Second World War and later.

It had the advantages of being more portable than larger mortars which needed vehicles to be carried around, but gave greater range and firepower than rifle grenades.

Famous quotes containing the word mortar:

    For the first time I’m content to see
    What poor mortar and bricks
    I have to build with, knowing that I can
    Never in seventy years be more a man
    Than now a sack of meal upon two sticks.
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)
