US Battle Dressings / Field Dressings
Immediately after World War II, the individual soldier continued to be provided with a single Carlisle bandage as his primary first aid in case of injury. The dressing itself, and the pouch to carry it, evolved along with the Army and Marine Corps equipment changes. The name became "Dressing, First Aid, Field" commonly called a Field Dressing or Battle Dressing.

Battle Dressings after WW2

The table below gives at least some of the individual Field Dressings (or Battle Dressings) in use in the post-war period, including Vietnam and later. As the pouch for an individual dressing was replaced by the Individual First Aid Kit, the Field Dressing became one component of the kit, as well as a common component of the "First Aid Kit, General Purpose" or larger kits. All such medical supplies fall under Federal Supply Class (FSC) 6510 - Surgical Dressing Materials. Some NSNs were made in multiple packages with slightly different nomenclature. Stock numbers changed over time (if the item continued in use) -- early stock number format such as "2-011-755" became FSN 6510-201-1755 which became NSN 6510-00-201-1755.

Colossus was arguably the first programmable electronic computer. In any case it was invented well before the American ENIAC. Colossus was developed during WWII for the sole purpose of breaking the Lorenz SZ-40/42 machine that was used by the German High Command.

After the war, GPO engineer Tommy Flowers, who designed the machine, was not recognised for his work due to the official secrets act.

In the 2nd half of the 20th century, Dutch defence electronics manufacturer Philips Usfa, developed and produced a wide range of crypto machines. Some of these were proprietary, but others were compatible with NATO standards.

Philips Usfa/Crypto was closed down in 2003.

During WWII, the Swiss developed the NEMA (Neue Maschine) as a replacement for their Enigma K machines, after they had discovered that both the Allies and the Germans were reading their traffic.

The machine closely resembles the Enigma and has even inhertited some of its weaknesses.

Transvertex was a small company in Sweden that produced cipher machines, similar to Hagelin. In order to prevent patent infringment however, the machines had to be based on a different principle.

The HC-9 (shown here) is the most well-known Transvertex machine.

Gretag, or Gretacoder Data Systems was a manufacturer of crypto equipment, based in Regensdorf, Switzerland. It was led by Dr. Edgar Gretener who was not only a direct competitor of Hagelin, but also co-operated with them on a number of projects. Over the years, Gretag produced a range of commercial, industrial and military cipher machines.

Although the German inventor Rudolf Hell is mainly known for his famous HELL-Schreiber and his range of graphical equipment, it is little known that in the years following WWII, he built a number of mechanical cipher machines.

The machines were built under license of Boris Hagelin for the German Army (Bundeswehr).

OMI was an opto-mechanical factory in Italy, who had specialised in stereo photography and cartography. Towards the start of WWII, they were asked to develop a high-end cipher machine, similar to the German Enigma.

The first machine was the OMI Alpha, which was released in 1939, followed by the Criptograph in 1954 and the Cryptograph-CR in 1958.

Over the years, the USA produced many different cipher machines. In some cases, these machines were developed by the NSA (National Security Agency), but sometimes they were bought 'of the shelf' from existing manufacturers.

As it is sometimes unclear who the developer or the manufacturer of a machine is, we've listed them separately.

Like the USA, the former Sovjet Union, or USSR, has a long cryptographic history. Over the years they produced a wide range of cipher machines of which only little is known.
