    Just a guess,maybe it was a message container to be thrown out of a reconaisense plane? To direct artillery fire?

    ... That's actually a pretty good idea

    That was my thoughts on his original post. It is less than one inch in diameter, so there is no way that it can be a WW1 mortar round. Nose and end-caps are push fit too.
