    No idea what nationality or weapon it is from (sort of looks German to me), but I would guess that it is a smoke dispensing mortar bomb judging by the hole in the body.

    It unscrews into 3 sections, I don't know if that helps with identification.

    Going from the ruler it's only about 30mm, perhaps a sub calibre mortar training round?...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    It`s possible what you have is a Russian 37mm mortar round for their spade mortar.

    Thanks zwerge it looks very similar, my one is only 30mm though. Would they use a smaller round in them for training etc?

    It is a 30mm French sub calibre mortar training round "LOSFELD", for all calibre mortar used by the French army.
