Can any one identifiy these items found on a defunct tank testing / training ground ...they are lead with what can best be decribed as a firing pin ..all have the remains of sand /buff paint the larger two are stamped No 3 IWDC and have dates RL 9/40 and the smaller is dated 10/43 ..checked with woolwich arsenal who did not think they were munition related checked with REME museum they did not recognise them ,checked with a retired Major in the REs and he had not seen the like wondering if they are strikers for smoke canistors or flares of some description ? Any ideas ?
