This is a rare (and very large!) Schermuly “Pistol Rocket Line” with two unopened complete cases of rope and a large wood instruction plate.
Everything is in very good condition.
The Schermuly flaregun worked by firing a regular flaregunshel into the big barrel, which had at the end a rocket shell added, that would be ignited by the flare. The rocket would then shoot away and carry the safety line/rope along to whereever it was needed.
The Schermuly flaregun/Linethrower is in full working condition. Finding unopened (waterproof?) cases of rope is very rare! The instruction board is a very nice extra that you don’t see very often.
