This is an unusual shooting stick that extends. There is a leather grip on one side of the seat and a disk that clips onto the top or fits onto the base to stop it sinking into the ground. I think that this has been an expensive stick when it was originally bought.


I would think about 1915


Mills Munitions Birmingham.
Sir William Mills (24 April 1856 - 1932) of Sunderland was the inventor of the Mills bomb which was developed and manufactured at his factory in Birmingham, England. The Mills bomb was the hand grenade most widely used by British and Imperial forces during the First World War. He was knighted in 1922. He later began to produce castings for parts needed in the new car and aircraft industries. He also invented a telescopic walking stick with a patent leather seat and he took out the first British patent on a windscreen wiper.


Shabby. This has been well used and is sowing signs of it's age. There should be a locking screw to keep the top seat in place but this is missing. This is a wonderful stick and would be a good addition to any ones collection. Please look at photos carefully.

Please check with pictures, any questions please email me.


The seat extend from about 26 to 32inches (66 to 82cms)


With the handle up it extends to 36inches (92cms)
