    Well, that's damned interesting, never seen one of them before, I don't even recall them in references...

    Neat piece, thanks for posting it!

    That is the best, what a small part of history, left totally undisturbed till you found it. Was it used ie as a flare or dumped during a retreat?

    Bjarne, that's cool. What was that for, para-flare?

    Yep, parachute flare you could launch from the rifle grenade launcher...

    Very cool, and as a pyrotechnic you could have it live here, not sure what the rules are in Europe...

    Dutch, that's a beauty. You "found" that one in climate controlled storage ;)
