REWARD: "The Ordnance Sergeant," September 1941

Postby P.W.Browning » Sun Oct 30, 2011 4:29 am

Looking for the September 1941 issue of the publication The Ordnance Sergeant.

In addition to payment for the issue I can provide readable digital copies of a couple other issues of your choice, you name the issue, or you can specify what Ordnance topics you're most interested in and I'll locate some articles for you.

Offering $100.00 for information leading to the purchase of an original hard copy. The tip must lead to the successful purchase of the issue, will be paid/mailed the day I receive the issue in-hand and excludes eBay auctions, I have that covered.

Please contact me via e-mail: p.w.browning@comcast.net

Thanks for your help,

-Patrick

Just because I have been curious ever since you posted this last October, what is the significance of/source of your interest in this issue?

Wish I could say I had a copy...

Patrick, I wish I could help. But I don't have that issue.

I too try to pick up an issue of Ordnance Sergeant whenever I can afford it. Maybe have a dozen or so.

They are simply the BEST reference for ordnance geeks and gearheads of all shapes and sizes.

Flip open the cover, and it's like a timemachine transporting you to some bustling ETO ordnance shop: a greasy tent chocked with cigar smoke, cosmoline, paint thinner acetylene tanks, ammo crates, stinky GIs....and a cussing First Sergeant.

but still fabulous right?

I have one issue thats a 43 or 44 dated issue. I find it better then Army Motors. It starts on page 123 and contains the MP40, 1919a6 being introduced, Mess trucks, and bomb loading in CCKWs.

That is the correct Publication, but you are showing the April 1941 issue.

The first issue appears to be hand typed, more of a collection of a few ordnance articles than an ongoing periodical. The next three are a bit more refined, as you can tell by the cover of the April issue. Starting May 1941 issues had pretty exciting and unique covers, it was also firmly in a magazine type format by then.

Thanks for keeping the thread alive! There has to be an issue out there someone is willing to part with... right?
