Original WWI Infantry Ranging Stake
Original Item: Extensively used during WWI and WWII by both the Allies and Axis troops, these steel ring topped 28" stakes were placed around machine gun nests and trench fortifications at predetermined distances and were often incorporated with barbed wire.
Once encountered by the opposing attack force the machine gunners and rifleman could immediately zero in on the assailants, knowing the precise range of these obstacles.
An unusual infantry accessory often overlooked by the collector.
