Acme Airborne Cricket Paratrooper WW2 WWII clicker

USA (British Made) WW2 101st Airborne Cricket: For the first time since 1944 the 'Acme' cricket is available again. This little device which was carried by the paratroopers of the 101st Airborne Division into France on D-Day June 6th 1944 was originally known as the 'No.470 clicker' by manufacturers J Hudson and Co Ltd of Birmingham England but quickly came to be called the 'cricket' by the airborne paratroopers.

After more than two years of hard work the cricket is being made once more. Not only that, they are being made by the original company, in the original factory, on the original machines and using the original dies.

These crickets are in fact original, they have just been made 70+ years after the first batch! They are made of brass and steel just as in the originals!

Do not confuse this cricket with others you may have seen for sale, this is the real thing. Your D-Day paratrooper rig will not be complete without a REAL 'Acme' cricket to tape to your helmet strap or string around your neck. This item would also make the ideal gift for the Airborne afficionado in your life. I repeat, you can buy a cheap imitation for £5 (the ones marked 'U.S' are totally incorrect!), but this is the real thing ,and a lot of work and effort has gone into producing this piece of Airborne history!

If you are one of the visitors to Littlecote House England on the Stephen Ambrose 'Band of Brothers' tour, yes, this is the cricket you saw there and you can now own it! If you watch the file 'The Longest Day', you will see this item used and demonstrated several times!

This cricket or clicker has been suitable aged and has received dents and scrapes reflecting how a 70+ year old cricket would look like. In addition the hole has been made with a bayonet and is not a perfect circle, as many originals had no holes. In addition the box has been aged, notice the weeping rust marks around the staples! The pictures below reflect the general condition of the box and cricket clicker, each one is individually aged so there will be variations in finish, all adding to its uniqueness! Like all our items you can get a full refund if you are not happy with it!

I repeat this is a post war (made after WW2), Cricket made by the same firm and the same design as the originals and suitable aged. It will be sent insured postage either domestic or worldwide!
