Hurricane Meteor Ammunition Box

This box , cartridge and rifle are pictured on the Spanish AECC site.
This is the box I got from Graham Ellis 40 years ago.
I wonder if it was the standard 50mm mortar cartridge or a different strength.
The rifle was a modified Gras?
I copy the drawn diagram of the cartridge from AECC with thanks.

The mortar propelling cartridges do not have a star crimp.
So these are just using the same (surplus?) case.

Here the one for the mortar (source internet):

Maybe add “harpoon gun” to the title?
