British 2 inch mortar parachute flare

Article about: Here is my parachute flare for the 2 inch mortar. 2/43 is February 1943 production I assume? Sorry for the poor pics, the silvery/grey finish is a nightmare for reflections.

    Thanks hangarman, I think it is complete; there is nothing obviously missing to my eyes but it is a bit outside my usual field. The cap has two circles on it. One is blank and the other has '41' in it with 5 dashes around the edge, almost like 15 minutes on a clock face. I'll try and get a pic.
