(3) Demolition kits. Explosive items of blasting demolition kits are packed, shipped and stored separately from nonexplosive items. Standard packing is used for explosive components. Nonexplosive components are issued initially in a chest, but may be requisitioned separately as replacement items. Earth rod kits are packed in plywood boxes. Demolition charge assemblies are packed in haversack-type carrying cases, with priming assemblies attached to the top of each case. Bangalore torpedo kits are packed in wooden boxes. Demolition training kits are packed in the standard platoon demolition chest.

(4) Mine-clearing devices. Antipersonnel, mine-clearing detonating cable, including accessories, is contained in a waterproof aluminum carrying case, overpacked in a wooden box. Antitank, mine-clearing devices are packed in large wooden crates.

b. Marking. In addition to nomenclature and ammunition lot number, packages prepared for shipment are marked with the Department of Transportation (DOT) shipping name or classification of the article, volume and weight.
