It's not a propane fitting

by James

I know the part you're referring to, it's not that. I used to be a gas appliance engineer. For one thing the larger end is sealed. I agree with you though that it looks similar.

It's not visible in the photo, but there are two holes near the major diameter almost certainly for a pin spanner wrench to grip.

My army friend also immediately identified it as a mortar fuse, and I was careful not to tell him what I thought it was.

Now I'd like to figure out how to ensure it is inert so I can disassemble it.
