Details

These handbooks were issued to all field units in contact with the enemy in Europe and Africa and were intended for use by all personnel to help them recognise enemy ammunition. Specialist personnel were then trained to handle and disarm/destroy the ammunition so found. Each pamphlet covers a number of items and this issue covers German Italian and Japanese shells fuzes and small arms ammunition.The German section includes a number of shells for the 5cm anti-tank gun now appearing in numbers on the battlefield together with the 4.7 HE and AP shell (even though the 4.7cm gun was being withdrawn it could still appear) and 7.5cm shell amongst others. It also describes the 5cm mortar bomb AP tracer and a 3.7cm arrow head shell. Italian grenades and mortar bombs are also covered as well as a Japanese nose fuze.Illustrated with line drawings.
