I brought a little jar like this from Normandy, is was found in the vicinity of Marcouf. In the museum in St.Mere Eglise were a couple of these jars among some items that were found belonging to a paratrooper. Does someone know if these jars were part of the personal equipment? And what was in them, perhaps tablets? It is brown glass, round and about 4cm high and 2,5cm wide.
Thanks in advance.

I agree with TexRdnec.

 

Do a Google search for Halazone WW2 or Halazone tablets ww2 then click on Images.
