US Paratroopers were issued these clicking "Crickets" which were intended for use to communicate with other Airborne Troops in the total darkness of Night immediately preceding the landings on June 6th.1944.
The paratroopers were free to hang their cricket wherever they wished.
Some have kept it in the pockets of their jackets or their pants, others have hung it around the neck or on their helmet.
Nowadays, many reproductions have been produced and it is not uncommon to hear "click-clack" in the commemorative ceremonies in Normandy.

When it's the middle of the night and your crawling on hands and knees through the woods and hear something else in the brush and didn't hear that "click clack" you paid closer attention to who or what it was that was making the noise ready to kill it if need be.

I got a box(24) of them, my Dad gave them to me when I was a kid. My Dad fought in World War II, we used to play with them.
