Hi all, I am new to the forum.  In 1997, I found what appears to be a military ripcord in a wooded part of Franklin Canyon Park, which is about midway between LAX and the Burbank airports, both of which had aircraft factories in the vicinity during WWII.  I will attach photos.  Can anyone ID this as to what type parachute it belonged to?  Sure wish it could talk!  It is a dull gray-green in color.  On the part of the handle that you grab, it is marked 62C4252 and (W) 70.    Where the wire attaches to the handle, it is marked -1 and a sideways letter T.  The last pin at the end of the wire has a reddish/orange plastic covering.  Thanks for any info you can supply.
