If your after WW2 stuff try http://www.wwiireenacting.co.uk/forum/index.php and ask for any demolition PDFS. You will most likely have to make the stuff, mainly out of wooden blocks etc

The easiest way is to print wrapping stencils onto brown paper then wrap paper blocks. TNT and Dynamite does tend to be somewhat difficult for most people to obtain. :-D

I have the same trouble for my SOE / Aux Units demo materials. I've made most of my Dynamite sticks, TNT, C3 and C4 stuff from brown greaseproof paper wrapped wooden blocks. You can find lists/descriptions/photographs/dimensions of the various packs in the US TM 9-1946 a reprint of which is available and you might try for it on Amazon books. It covers everything including Cap blasting machines, Bangalore Torpedo's and shaped charges. There's also a great source in US FM 5-25 which has been reprinted as 'U.S. ARMY EXPLOSIVES AND DEMOLITIONS HANDBOOK' available via Amazon books at about £10. PM me as I have a US Engineer Galvanometer 'surplus to requirements' which you might like for a small sum. river6 over and out.

Thanks might sounds a daft question but how do you get the writing on the grease proof paper do you just stick it in the printer

Do you have your uniform allready?

A nice detail is they wore paratrooper boots.

 

Also the M1903 rifle was used since they weren't meant for direct combat.
