    That thing is old. The current color for the last 40 or more years has been light green body with black lettering.

    Could this be a different countries version? The light green would be the US/NATO color scheme. Possibly this was made for someone else? KC is Kilgore which is a US company, although works with Chemring, so there is an international flavor to it as well.

    But thanks for showing it ... it is an interesting version.

    What chemical compound was used to fill these for white smoke back in the 1940's?
