The body of this flare is made of aluminium.
Removal of the protective cap reveals a 55mm long trip fuze, to which the trip wire is attached.
The fuze has 4 possible wire attachments. When wires are attached, the trip flare is armed by pulling the safety-strap/ring.
The base had an attachment for the flare to be set on a stake.
