Marshall help items

Hello

A few years back, I found this wooden box, at a flea market. It containes a navigational tool. The instructions are dated 1942. I guess, that it was one of the huge quantity of items, delivered to Norway, as part of the Marshall help, imidiately post war. If anyone has an idea, aboat what kind of aircraft, this instrument would have been used in, or if anyone has any period documentation, or photo's, I would be grateful.

All the best

Another flea market find. I am not shure, if this flash light, is from the Marshall help, or if it is more modern. I can't find a date on the flash light, but as a lot of the US items, that surface in Norway, used to belong to these post war shipments, of war surplus, I decided to include it. If anyone has any thoughts, or knowledge about the age of the light, please let me know. The flash light has a Coast Guard approval marking, and it looks like it is made from some sort of bakelite material.

    • Brian: First, let me say that I always enjoy reading your blog and your "spot on" comments.  Another fine topic with such a broad expansion into so many different facets.  I had watched this a week or two ago and when reading your blog, it reminded me of this great quote.   There is a great video on the origins of "Who was Murphy in Murphy's Law"   Anyway, about mid way through this video, there is this great quote and I think it sums it up quite well to your statem
