Here is a photo of a Priester. The firer is a bit close to it. Normally it was fired by tugging a cord about one metre long. The strange name Priester is allegedly due to the fact that the weapon was invented by a Hungarian priest named Vecer. Originally deployed with the Austro-Hungarian army, it was made under license by (amongst others) Stocks of Berlin for the German army, where it was also called the Granatwerfer 16. The bomb weighed 2 kg and had a maximum range of 500 metres. The weapon was manned, like all other such types, by the engineers
