CCC St Martin was 1-2 on RT So. Carolina and then became One-Zero of RT New York
The explanation is incorrect in the following regards:
– det cord size was not standard. It was approx 1/2″ thick.
– det cord was purpose-built, was OD in color, came issued on a spool and could be cut to length.
– standard det cord had a core of powdered PETN. The core on this cord was more like a plastic explosive; ends did not need to be sealed to prevent a powder from leaking and creating a void.
– possessed frag sleaves of approx 1 1/2″ long, spaced approx 1 1/2″ apart. Each made of coiled, serrated spring steel of the same type found in grenades – – not washers.
– could be thrown onto a tree limb or bush with a time fuze/pencil to break pursuit; laid along a trail for linear ambush; as it resembles a jungle vine, it has many possibilities. – – We used this device on the operation to break pursuit.
