Many fakes are seen sold by American, Belgian French dealers or particulars since a long time.

 

Who has original with exact weight, exact lenght?

 

QM 1943 and 1946 show exactly these spécifications. I remember a Jeep trailor full of ropes in England before D Day without wrapping paper. As soon as I will find it in a book in my Library  about WWII parachutists, I will show to you.

 

Today all ropes I saw in wrapping paper with a splendid tag seem fakes for some reasons I will told later.

 

Her are QM 1943 and QM 1946 text.

Your opinion please.....

Be careful, rope used on D-Day in Normandy is not the same one used in Holland.
