    from the stamping on the side it looks to be a 105mm tank base eject smoke shell. missing a driving band and should be able to see up inside from the bottom.

    It is a Shell 105mm Tank Base Ejection Screening Smoke for the 105mm L7 tank gun. There were two variations within the only mark, and Empty Design Dwg. SX958 is the later one.
