That is an OILER it it a part of the cleaning kit in a SMLE MK III. It was filled with mineral oil or light machine oil ( similar to todays 3 in 1) the little spoon applied the oil to the slide area of the bolt after cleaning ( remember corrosive primers etc. at that age)
the second pic shows where the oiler and cleaning string was stowed, the oiler going in first then the string to make it easier to get it out.
