1938 Calendar - Aux Training Manual - NEW issue with added amendments and details
This is the most illustrated of the three training manuals that were issued.
An obvious difference between the 1937 Calendar and the 1938 was the amount of information given to Auxiliers in the application of their stores.
Many ideas developed by experience over the two previous were detailed, including novel booby traps such as a No.36 grenade placed with its pin removed and contained inside an empty food tin. The tin was tied to a tree or convenient post and a wire attached to the grenade stretched across a path or road. When ‘tripped’, the wire simply pulled the grenade out of the tin – and exploded. In another, a ‘double’ trap allowed an enemy to find one wire only to walk into another.
