    And the holes are just long and cylindrical- I'd doubt then the container is for fuses, which are invariably conical. Maybe it's for detonators or 'gaines'? There are no other identifying markings on it at all- just the maker?

    Its not a fuze canister
    It is a canister for gains or boosters.
    I guess this one is for zdl A for navy use ( have seen them on a wreck)

    I have the same bakelite box found on last possitions of Werfer Regiment 70 and Infanterie Division 121 near Libau, it was near to Baltic sea. But I don't know what was there inside.
