Record 626/959
Chaff. Strip of tin foil with black covering. This artifact was sent to Arthur P. Kannenberg on March 28, 1944, by Sgt. Orville Kramer, 465th Medical Company. With this artifact he sent a letter which reads: "Arthur Kannenberg: In this letter you will find something you might be interested in it is nothing but a piece of tin foil with a black covering. The Germans drop it over England on their raids over England and it kills the sound waves so the sound detectors lose them in a certain area. This is a nice country here but the people sure have went through a lot so far here. Compared with home they have been through hell here so far. The people at home are living like kings. If I find anything else in my travels that I think you might be interested in I will send it to you. Yours Truly, Orville Kramer"
