Hello and welcome back to another update of Forgotten Hope. Today, we would like to show some equipment for the US army in Normandy.

The render below shows (from left to right) the D-day "Cricket" clicker, made by Knoffhoff, the AN-M8 smoke grenade, made by Toddel, the M1917 Revolver, made by K96, a set of Composition B explosives, by Seth Soldier and the US Carlisle Dressing, also made by Knoffhoff.

The "Cricket" clicker was a small device given to US paratroopers on D-day, to be used as a means of identification. If you bumped into someone in the dark, you would click your cricket once and if the other person was also a paratrooper he would respond by giving two clicks. The crickets were only used on D-day.

The M1917 Revolver was developed during the First World War to supplement the M1911 Pistol, but although they remained in use during the Second World War and indeed also the Korean War they were generally only issued to secondary troops. About 300,000 of them were produced between 1917 and 1920.

That's all for this week, but be sure to come back next time for another update. Until then, feel free to visit our IRC channel and our public forums to discuss this update and other news.
