If you can get the German "Beobachterhandbuch" of WWI then you can expect also descriptions of the used Signalmittel.

These guys could know more too:

BTW another example of German bureaucracy preventing useful private initiatives is given in the text there.

It looks to me that every single piece of ammunition was hit, look at the bulletholes pierced in them, some test to see what happened after direct hits?

These are flares of the Eisfeld “cannonless” flare gun which was developed in 1918-19 but never officially adopted by the military aviation during the war (as far as I know). As Jeroen says, it seems that the Flugzeugmeisterei tested the flares reaction to gunfire to detect if these could explode or burn if hit.

Sieht aus wie einfaches Querschnittmodell einer der obigen Signalpatronen.

Mehr zur Geschichte von Eisfeld unter:

Silberhütte anklicken. Vielleicht gibts ja ein Heft zur Firmengeschichte oder noch Dokumente aus alten Zeiten dort.
