soldier id

Early War Soldier's ID: Outside, Inside
The original ID card was printed on a pigskin textured brown paper. You can see where the paper has worn & the fabric reinforcement is visable. The interior is a beige paper. To make this card, print the outside on brown textured paper & the inside on beige paper. Spread glue on the entire back of both pieces of paper & sandwich a piece of muslin between the two. Stack a few books on top of this for a few days to let it dry. (make sure to protect the books from the moisture of the glue) Then, score along the two vertical folds, trim to size & fill out.

Charms Candy Label - Click HERE to see the repro compared to original
These candys were an issue item. My original came out of an original lifeboat ration. These were also part of the Paratrooper's Ration.

I made the inner wrapper from a piece of typing paper. It should actually be a slick paper about the weight of typing paper. Use a piece 4.5"x3.5".

You can purchase Charms Candy by the 20 ct case from Discount Candy.

cmr 1927-1943 Company Morning Report
There are six files. They are paired into front/back page sets. 1/2, 3/4, 5/6.
This form REQUIRES a printer which can handle 8.5"x17". My printer can not handle that, so I haven't been able to test the form at final size.

When cut down, (cut along red lines) you'll have 5 pages which are 3.75"x17". These will be folded in half, and stapled with one staple along the spine of the form.

You need to install the .zip file of fonts before loading & printing the form.
Turn OFF the "Shrink", "Expand", and "Auto-Rotate" check boxes in the print popup.

This form was originally printed on a heavy off-white paper stock. (like resume paper)
