This device originally designated the 'No. 470 clicker' and made by J Hudson of Birmingam is being made by them once more. Go to Airborne crickets and take a look.

Any reason why they are making them or is it just for nostalgic reasons?

The crickets clicked once and a friendly was ment to reply with two clicks- the same as a bolt action Mauser Rifle used by the Germans.
Classic John Wayne line after he clicks his cricket and gets the 4 click reply in the hanger before flying to France, 'That's all'.
