Hi all
The beach I detect has all manner of wwii stuff strewn across it but I found this fragment when out his morning and it has the numbers 10-15 on it and some thread on the other side, so wonder if it is possible for anyone to determine what it may have come from if it act military

, appreciate this may be a log shot but ther is so much expertise on here I thought I would ask. I thought initially a fuse of some sort but searching the net I couldn't see anything with similar numbers.
Thanks
Mark
