Ignition cartridge


I have found this cartridge, and I think it is a ignition cartridge for a mortar, but can anybody help me with more information?
Thanks in advance.



Lars, this one is a German mortar propelling cartridge for 50mm projectiles.

I think the cartridge comes from WASAG, Reinsdorf. Made in 1943
