piece of wood in a glass tube with metal ends. no writing , stamps anywhere. Thickness about the same as a 5p piece and roughly 1.75 inches long .........any ideas?
can't take the ends off found in a charity shop in a 10p bargain bucket

It's a piece of emergency wood, you know 'Break Glass In Case Of Emergency'. Put it on the wall in an area where it would be dangerous to not have wood.

It's Monkey's staff - you just have to know the magic word.

Holy relic. Obviously a piece of the cross that jebus was certified on

This is actually a small piece of that staff that Moses(?) cast down only to see it turn to a serpent. When the effect of the opium wore off and it became a staff again they cut it into small pieces to ensure it would not happen again. This is one of those small pieces. (Don't drop it on the floor!)

It is a navy thing, it's the bung that goes into the hole in the barrel whilst no one is inside to receive a Seaman special.......

Does it float inside a glass tube indicating the fill level of a submarines balast or a ships bilge?

Edit - a form of manometer.
