I picked this one up today but can't find anything about it online.  Measures about 19 inches in length.  The markings I would imagine indicate that this is a green parachute flare.  The N.G.F. markings I believe are for the Naval Gun Factory.  I am trying to figure out in what capacity was it used?  Given the size my best guess is it was fired from a ship or aircraft but I really don't know.  Any help would be appreciated & thanks!

I was able to identify this as a Submarine Emergency Identification Signal MK2 MOD2.

 

Pretty neat!
