    Richard, I believe years ago there was some one who was a member Naval Landing Party making them. But no telling if they are still around. May check on the Navy forum if some one has one to sell.

    Don't know if you'd feel like making your own, but one of the projects in my next book is for a pair of battle rattles.



    The one at the top of the photo is lathe-based (as were most originals), with both the body and handle being turned on the lathe. The one below it doesn't require a lathe. Both are made from white oak, as was typical of the period for these items, with brass hardware.

    I'd be happy to post or send the patterns.
