Hey Guys, Finally got around to making my M1 HC SMOKE Pot.  The top and straps are original.

A beautiful job on your Smoke Pot.  I have not seen any of those before up close. 

 

Who would be responsible for employing these in the field, Engineers?

 

Thanks for the post.

They were carried in the M8 and M20 armored cars. Probably others as well.

Thanks for the nice words guys, I agree something you dont see much of.  What I have read is they were used in training, marking airfields and in combat to obscure.  Got the second one done today might do a couple more.  It is interesting to see the different style handles from the various manufactures that made them, I may do a post showing the styles if there is eny interest.  Van over at Questmaster made the stencils for me.

Very cool and lots of dedication to make these. I have 2 real smoke pots in my collection. Will be selling one here in the future when time permits and I get a idea of value. I think I paid $300 or 350 for each years ago.
