Remember "The Longest Day?" Historical fact: U.S. 101st airborne division paratroopers were issued handheld clicking "Crickets", which were intended for use to communicate with other airborne troops in total darkness of night immediately preceding the landings on June 6th,1944. The soldiers called the signaling devices "crickets" because of the sharp "crick" sound it made when pressed.

The crickets were lifesavers for American paratroopers scattered in the dark on a morning when using a flashlight to check a map or shouting in English meant instant death. The cricket was an excellent signalling device for the hours of darkness. If you came across somebody, a soldier would click once and if two clicks were received in return from an unidentifiable soldier, then his identification was confirmed as a friend. Beware, a no return click meant the person was a foe! A must-have collectible, just like the originals from yesteryear. The kids will love ’em or use to train your dog!
