D-Day Cricket Signalling Device

It was after the Airborne operation over Sicily in 1943 that Commander Taylor, the future general commanding the 101st Airborne Division (The Screaming Eagles), realized the importance of communication among the parachuted units in enemy territory. Scattered in various places, isolated paratroopers often had a hard time to find their comrades without risking exposure to enemy fire. The Americans reused the principle of a popular toy at the time, the ‘Cricket’ consisted of a steel spring blade emitting a click-clack when pressed and released (similar in sound to the insect). British manufactures were given an order of several thousand of the devices to be used by the 101st Airborne Division on D-Day. To use the device, it was squeezed, flexing the steel spring and making a 'click-clack'- asking for the identification. The response should be a double squeeze making two 'click-clacks'. If the response was not two ‘click-clacks’ the Para opened fire! This is a faithful reproduction of the original device. Watch the YouTube video
