Default German flare gun cartridge

Hello,
A lot of cartridge has been found in my area.
There’s no date on it, and obviously there never was.
What do you think ?
Manufacturer "cbl" for the whole lot
Thank you.
Best regards.
Patrick.

Interesting find.

Usually German flares have an expiration date printed on the body of the cartridge.

I agree, all those I have seen had much maker and production date info printed. Not saying these are bad...but strange. What does it say on the boxes?

I already had some of the same cartridges , coming from stocks left in the south
of France in 1944 .
Simplified markings used in 44 ?

Good morning,
Thank you for those answers.
There’s no original box.
Regards.
Patrick.
