Instruction Sheet M18a1 Antipersonnel Mine
,This is a folded 10' x 16' 'oil cloth' type printed sheet of instructions. The printing is on one side only, and shows five steps (with details and illustrations). Step 1 - Where to Position Mine; Step 2 - How to Aim Mine; Step 3 - How to Arm Mine; Step 4 - How to Test Circuit; Step 5 - How to Fire Mine. This sheet DOES NOT tell you how to manufacture a mine. It appears that this sheet was issued with the pre-manufactured mine. The figures in the illustrations appear to be military personnel. We purchased this item from a local ephemera dealer, mixed in with a lot of unrelated material. Ill.: black-&-white illustrations. No date of printing is indicated but, judging by the devices being used, it may have been printed in the 1950s or 1960s.
