    British smoke clusterbomb?

    I was told this is a british WW2 smoke clusterbomb. It has four holes in top of the canister body, and the fuze is the type normally used on the No.69, but this fuze has no thread on the cap that can fall away when turned upside down. I was told it is a British WW2 smoke clusterbomb.
    Who can help me on info, like: type designation, drawings, what clusterbomb is it used in..
    The length of the body is 112mm, length of the complete item (with fuze ) is 147mm, diameter is 62mm.

    Thanks in advance,
    Regards, DJH

    Its not a cluster bomb more similar to a No 79 smoke grenade with 247 fuze and cap. Very nice. If you dont want it, pass it my way.
