Several years ago we looked at an example of a Shrike Exploder here, used to set off demolition circuits. These exploders run off batteries and in the field it is of course essential to have spare batteries in case of a sudden loss of power at a critical moment. The batteries used with the Shrike are a propriety type, only form use with this device, rather than a standard set of AAAs! This spare battery of course could not be left loose where the connectors could become damaged so a specialist pouch was issued to carry it in:
The battery was rectangular and only about 1/4″ deep, so the pouch is equally slender to hold it securely. The top of the flap is secured with a single press stud and details of the contents are heat printed on the front in white:
The contents for the pouch are marked under this top flap, again in white lettering:
This was one of those cheap little finds that I picked up without quite realising what it was, it was only later when I came to investigate something else that I realised what I had bought and it was then very nice to be able to pair it up with the matching Shrike unit.
