Subject: RE: Torch Wicks
IIRC, there were four, small, integral to the construction of the brass "tube." I'll see if I can't locate a photo.|
Your questions do bring up several questions in my mind:
The other point to keep in mind is that I am describing US only. From a memo written by E.P. Alexander shortly after the war, describing the torches, published in an old issue of the "Signal Cipher" (hard-copy fore-runner of this website) I feel certain that some CS version(s) existed (perhaps even executed in tin?), but no examples have surfaced as yet, nor have I uncovered any CS documentation or specifications.
Let me check further in the morning.
