Hi, here is Rauchsichtzelchen Orange #80 Smoke Candle that was recovered in Volgograd area. A friend sent it with a pioneer tag and other items. It is made of lightweight aluminum. It's not too bad condition......and........ the price was right.....nothing.
Originally it would have had a small pull ring and string under the cap, and you would pull it sharply like an M39 Egg grenade fuze. The fuze delay on these smoke candles was 1.5- 2.5 seconds.
These smoke candles also came in 2 other versions a little larger, #100 and 120 if I recall correctly. They were mostly used for signaling aircraft I think, but could be used for ground troops, or any signaling I would assume.
