    I like the cargo tags! For years it was said they were fake because people called them "escape from stalingrad passes" but they have a more simpler role.

    Yes, shape and colour was supposed to indicate the wound severity in order to provide passage out of Stalingrad. Unfortunately the story wasn't true and many who'd paid highly for such tags were reluctant to believe they'd purchased simple freight tags.

    Something to do with weight distribution I believe?
    Just as important in planes today for cargo balance.

    Hi Sebastien:
    Very interesting finds. I like the carbide lamb especially. Attached are some pics of
    one that I got from Tom. It is in such good condition that I believe it would function
    if I tried to actually use it.
    Tks,
