Does anyone know when the M1 detonating cord clip was introduced?

See, now its the little things like this that interest me... since I have a Demo display, things like this would be a real find. They say the devil is in the details... and I say it's the details that make the display. I'd like to find little things like this... the priming adapters and such...

FM 5-25 dated Feb 1944 does not show the detontaing cord clips, but the May 1945 update does. There were several changes to that manual between those 2 dates, but I don't have any copies to study.

The only two references I was able to find online were in the 1980s and 1990s...

I didn't go online to find that info. I just turned around in my chair and went to my library of original manuals from WW2. I have hundreds of them. Good stuff there.

Thanks, I do have the 1944 manual but not the 1945 one...

 

I have a limited quantity of these clips which go back to my Infantry NCO's Demolition Course in the early 80s....

Oh thats it... rub it in!!!! :lol:

 

I'm still working at obtaining some of the manuals I need for my Demo impression. I just obtained a carrying tin for the Switch no.10 time pencil detonators for my display. Now I need to work up a few reproductions for display. I know they won't be 100% accurate, but I'm going to get as close as I can. I'll probably use copper tubing.

 

I'd like to come up with the WWII priming adapters... and a few of the M1 clip if they were used back then as well.

Were all of them painted OD or did they use bare metal ones too...

 

I have (seen) both and both are pictures in Mike Detrez' At the Point of no Return book too...
