ID:	145709I just picked up a small tin and inside of it are three large fish hooks and an arrow head. From the parts it hooks together and is assembled as some sort of Grappling hook or arrow. Did the military of any country have some similiar device. By the way its made of aluminum.

    Any chance of a couple of photos, (with a measure alongside if possible) mate, they wll give us a lot better idea and help identifying it.

    These photos should do. The reference coin is a US quarter.

    I would guess, due to the size and materials used, that this is fishing related and not military? Alloy and the size would simply not take any real weight to have a military application.

    Cheers, Ade.

    There you go. Honest Ade chiming in. Actually thats what I thought but it could have some military use. Light line throwing, Creek dragging (looking for detonator lines) putting trip wires accross something. . . .

    The green tin made me think military.
    Probably just a surplus tin.

    Thanks

    H Bob, the tin does have a WW2 look to it and I can see why you thought that.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Agreed, fishing related items.

    Looks like a poachers kit...............!
