This item was found on a WW2 airfield by a friend of mine. Initially I thought it was an American rifle grenade but the tail seems too short. I then thought it could be a 2inch mortar with the tail fins rotted off, but why the circular bit on the end of the tail ?
So, the question is, what is it ?? Oxy bottle ? Fire extinguisher ? Ordnance ?
It is roughly 12inches long by 2inches in diameter.
