Airborne Cricket – Paratrooper Clicker
Airborne Cricket - Paratrooper Clicker
For the first time since 1944 the ACME cricket is available again. Manufactured in the same Birmingham factory, on the same presses and using the same dies. For authenticity you will not find a better D-Day Cricket, these are exactly the same as the originals taken into Normandy by the 101st Airborne Division on D-Day, June 6th 1944.

In order to minimize reproduced D-Day clickers being passed off as originals the manufacturers stamped an additional discreet pressing into the body which can only be seen by looking inside the cavity. This doesn’t detract from the original appearance of the clicker, it is just used for authenticity, and the clickers retain a look that is entirely authentic externally. These genuine J Hudson and Co. clickers are the best available and are sure to please any true airborne aficionado or re-enactor.
This may be the last time I’m able to offer these !
