Hi Guys, this is a new purchase of mine which I picked up at a show last weekend. The seller, Robert, was Polish and always has a good selection of relics from the Ostfront at UK shows.
I am not 100% certain of the correct wartime designation of these, but Dimas thinks it is an phosphorus AZh- 20 capsule? I would welcome confirmation. These were air dropped from aircraft.
They come in two types, like mine, constructed from 2 parts, or another version made from 5 parts. Very lightweight and made of alloy. I had a choice of several, but picked this one due to the amount of original paint still intact. It is of course empty and inert. Robert mentioned these are very "dodgy" and should never be handled if discovered full. Robert found a small cache of these all empty.
