Please do, I do not think it is uniform related, more like some sort of equipment. But I ruled out latern or stove part, it is small. Flat support piece? Radio part? Not a german mess container ??? I have no idea.
It is too small for a wood stove part.( 5.5 cm long a hair more than 2 inches). It always drove me nuts when prehistoric archaeologists get on a historic site and measure in metric like they were taught in college for prehistoric junk like arrowheads & ceramics.
