German Alarmleuchtzeichen Part

Flag_of_the_NSDAP_(1920–1945).svgThis is part of what is called an Alarmleuchtzeichen or alarm-flare trap. This holder was nailed to a tree and the charge containing the illuminating compound fitted into it. Then a simple cord was attached and tied across a path or access way. This one was found attached to a tree stump in Courland.
