With the amount of knowledge here this shouldn't take long. I "acquired" the flare in the attached image (sorry about the bad photo).
The actual flare is about 5/8 of an inch in diameter and one and a half inches long and the threaded end is of red plastic (does this identify it as a red flare?). The flare screws onto the blaze orange firing mechanism and the mechanism is actualted via a spring loaded finger tab.
The flares are in a plastic "magazine" that holds nine flares and the firing mechanism clips on the top of the "magazine".
Does anyone know what type of flare this is, and if the flares are still available. It has no identifying marks. I have a suspicion that it is military but I'm only guessing.
And a flare colour question to finish. Am I being told right that a red flare means "HELP", a green flare is"HERE I AM" and a white flare is "EVERYTHING OK, NO HELP REQUIRED"
