Product Description

For the first time since 1944 the ACME D-Day 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. For more on the history of the Airborne Cricket click here.

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.

    Great quality and awesome packaging. Using it to train my dog and to keep in contact with my daughter in the woods. Lots of fun and many questions on what it is and where it came from.

    What an honor to own what the greatest generation used on D-Day to save us all from the National Socialist’s! I gave some to a couple of combat Marine vets and they thought it was awesome!
    God Bless America!
