    Without any markings they are difficult to ID positively. As soon as I saw them I thought of the camouflage paint sticks used to cover your exposed skin.

    However, they could just as easily be a non military use. Can you give us a little more information ? Where were they found for instance ?

    PS Get a magnifying glass and look at them VERY closely.....there may be very small markings on them somewhere.

    Military Cam Sticks usually have a cap at both ends so you can push the cam up to use it..I don't think that is what these are.

    Just my thoughts.

    Hi Steve!
    These came from an attic in Estonia, so its hard to date them from that point of view.
    I agree that they could also be for non military use...
    Perhaps I should look closer with a magnifying glass... I will do that, when I get back home.

    Perhaps contained water purefication tablets...or maybe matches? Just a thought!

    No markings. I guess they are post war soviet items...
