Engine Start Cartridge

Anybody know anything about a 8 Ga ? blank cartridge used to start the engine on a F4F Wildcat fighter. There is a video on Facebook, Wild Warbirds, a company who does rebuild work on WW2 aircraft, that shows the starting procedure. Tom

The Breeze starters were used on a whole row of engines. Also there was the Coffman starter which was more used in aircrafts.
