Saw this at Sainte-Mère-Église in Normandy, France. Has to do with the gliders. I know what it is and what is it purpose, but I can not imagine the pilots using it all the time, or was it forbidden to move with about 20 kilograms of operational equipment? The smallest weights represent 50, 20 and 10 kilograms (giving the possiblity to create any type of soldier...).

Yes, obviously for weight and balance... but how did it end up in Ste-Mére-Église?
Donated to a museum possibly? Exactly where did you see it, museum?
