Hello everybody. I found this item in the Greek island of Leros, in a place that the German Kustenjagers landed by boats. It reminds me the main body of a projectile but i'm not sure at all..Any thoughts will be appreciated...
Thank you in advance.

Hi Klarkon, as always: your spot on! I knew it was a mortarfuse, but didn't remember what type...
