On D-Day, two members of each U.S. assault boat team were supposed to carry "large search-nose cutters". I'm assuming these were something other than M1938 wire cutters. I have not been able to find the correct nomenclature for these or any photos of them (However, pics of German Army search-nose cutters are easy to find). Does anyone have any additional info on these? Were they Army standard issue or items obtained from non-standard sources (civilian/British military/etc.) Any help or leads would be appreciated.
