Is it dangerous ?

Article about: Exactly...something very similar, in any case, and with the same purpose. I assume that the knurled knob unscrews from the tube and has the pin attached to it? No idea as to what Nationality

    It depends what it is?

    It sort of looks like an oil bottle? Can you give use some context as to where it was found? E.g. was it found on the site of a transit camp or a bombing range? Cheers.

    Strange object indeed. The screw cap has a machined rim which suggests frequent removal with the minimum of effort. For lubrication perhaps? It also looks like it was attached to something else on one side. In what context did you find it?

    Mark.

    My initial impression is the same as James's-it look like an oiler bottle to me.
