Big Red here with a question from "Steve McCroskey"...
So, TAKE FIVE!
"Big Red, in the liner suspension system, what did they put on the ends of the crown adjustment string to keep it from fraying?"
Good question Steve,
The answer is, Rubber Cement.
According to Quartermaster Corps records drawing A191789 July 1, 1941, the ends of the tie string were to be dipped in rubber cement to prevent fraying or unraveling.
Big Red Says!
FIVE'S OVER - MOVE OUT!
