SELF MADE

Within the scope of preparing Ordnance Matériel for Deep Water Fording (during amphibious operations) there is a document (or notice) that is fixed to the lower left inside windshield (in front of driver) of each vehicle . The obverse side shows a large US Flag, with small spaces underneath, while the reverse side (turned toward the driver) contains necessary instructions before wading ashore basic de-waterproofing after reaching the beach . This document, officially called Inspector's Notice, is intended for use by special personnel who filled in the necessary spaces related to vehicle, towed load, date, hour, and their initials, after thoroughly inspecting each vehicle and its component parts to determine correctness of operation, defects or deficiencies, prior to a fording operation . (our model is based on a genuine item,  and was recreated on quality paper, with a first class color photocopier)

HEDGEHOG (Beach Obstacle)


SELF MADE

For defense of the German "Atlantic Wall" against possible Allied landings, the Germans constructed and installed a variety of beach obstacles . Among the number of 'Element C' (Belgian gates) - Stakes or Poles (with Atk mines) - Ramps (wooden logs) - Tetrahedrons (pyramidal-shaped obstacles) - Hedgehogs (3-piece angle irons), whe have chosen to represent the latter, i.e. Hedgehogs . (our model is based on a genuine item, property of the Utah Beach Museum, its dimensions were slightly altered to facilitate transport, while it was constructed of heavy marine plywood, painted in a rust-like color, and varnished against moisture and water)
Description : wooden beach obstacle, after assembly, still unpainted (recreated by Sgt "Andrew S. Vilinsky")


RATION,FIELD, TYPE D (D-Bar)


SELF MADE

One of the first 'concentrated' emergency rations used by the US Army . The final WWII product which emerged in 1937 was a palatable 4-ounce bar containing 600 calories, whose chief ingredients were chocolate, sugar, skim milk powder, cocoa fat, oat flour and vanillin, fortified with Vitamin B-1 . It was standardized in 1938 as Ration, Type D (mainly used in excess of prescribed daily K Rations) . We have chosen to recreate one of the later variants, enclosed in a paperboard carton with its contents packed in a cellophane wrapper . (our model is based on a genuine item, and we went to great lengths recreating contents by constructing a small mould to faithfully represent the D-Bar (one bar to be broken up into 6 individual units), it is all chocolate, and perfectly edible !)


RATION,FIELD, US ARMY, TYPE K (10-in-1 Unit)


SELF MADE

The "10-in-1" Ration was introduced to provide a Support Area Ration for a number of troops in the field . It was sufficient to feed ten men for one day, although it was packaged in such a way as to be used for as few as five men at a time . Each separate case contained one of five different menus (marked accordingly) containing a wide variety of canned food and accessory items consisting of cigarettes, matches, can openers, toilet tissue, soap, water purification tablets, and paper towels . (our model is based on a genuine item, individual component of such 10-in-One Ration, while contents were recreated, as close as possible to WWII, though with current products e.g. biscuits-gum-candy-sweets-soluble coffee, all edible)
