Looks as if it was for general use, the sort of items sappers would use for all sorts of tasks. Those for use with weapons were usually in a metal frame and were often adjustable. Could still be a useful tool. Check its accuracy finding a level surface i.e one which your level says is level and turn the level end for end. If it still indicates a level surface it's OK.

As a collector of military marked tools, take my word for it, that is a very very nice find.
