    DM or CR at a rough guess.
    But powder is external to canister. Could be anything from flower of sulphur to mustard powder.
    That’s powder NOT gas! IDing is useless from the image. Needs taking to a independent chemist.
    Lack of external markings is suspicious…

  2. Thanks for commenting. Its powder outside the canister, but “could” be gas if treated differently i.e heated..or what not. Agree that one can not ID from a picture. But it is a start, and its useful as a point of reference.

  3. […] might suspect its the same as found in Egypt Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:LikeBe the first to like this […]
