Relic Carry Case for a German Z34 Charge.

 

A battle relic find in woods near Falaise, Normandy.   

A rare carry case for the German Sprengpatronen Z34 demolition charge.
The case is pretty rusty with several perforations. 
The seal tag is missing and the lid gone, so more than likely this was used to spike a gun during the rout through Falaise in 1944


The charges designated as "SprPatr Z" were used for demolition of guns and howitzers.
The model number is named after the diameter of the explosive charge.
Each charge had a range of gun models it could be used for.

A field gun at the front would normally have a SprPatr. Z issued, so the gun could be damaged beyond use by the gun crew in case they had to abandon it.
