Probably a Japanese Navy Type 0 model 1

It looks like it is a flare, probably a Navy Type 0 Model 1. Measuring 13 3/4 by 3 inches. From "Handbook of Japanese explosive ordnance OPNAV 30-3M, pp 242-243. These were floating sea Flares. They have a weighted nose and the smoke exits out the tail. Great picture. I might have ID'ed this on a different site?

The second flare from the left in the picture measures 20 inches long, 4 inches wide, it could be that one as well.
