    First pic is Gr.Werfer 34 charge casing.
    Second pic is not military related nor is the last pic as it looks like a old curtain rod holder.
    Welcome to the forum.

    The third item looks to be a field made MG34 mount

    As said the first item is a charge casing...or an increment tin. The actually items contained in the tin were circular with a hole in the middle with a cut from the outer edge to the inner circle. These contained an extra boost and would be fitted just above the tail fin of the mortar bomb to increase the distance the bomb could be fired. Hope that makes sense.
