Have you thought about grit blasting it and look for a TL number ?, it might just be something a logger or farmer attached.

That truncated cone shape device is the rubber housing over the lamp socket for your rear facing light. The metal bracket you have been asking about creates a housing to mount and protect the lamp and switch assembly.

Your MK-II mortar carrier uses Single Pole wiring. That wiring diagram was previously posted to you on your FB page identification request.

A similar original assembly is available from Stefan in NL at LWDparts.com
