Military use of 12 gauge Tracer ?
Do any of you have data you can provide regarding whether the military used tracer rounds in the 12 gauge shotguns during or post WWII? Seems like I read somewhere that they were used in training bomber crewmen in aerial gunnery but, I cannot find an actual reference to it in the publications I have (Canfield's "United States Combat Shotguns" and "TM 9-285 Shotguns, All Types September 21, 1942"). Thanks in advance.

They did use tracer shotshells. Check out this thread for info and pictures of Remington 12ga Military tracer.

Also American Rifleman article:
