Accord­ing to Wikipedia: “The ori­gin of the U.S. term plas­tique is due to the plas­tic explo­sive intro­duced to the U.S. by the British in 1940. The sam­ples of explo­sive brought to the USA by the Tizard Mis­sion had been pack­aged by SOE ready for drop­ping to the French Resis­tance and were labeled in French, as Explosif Plas­tique.” I wish more peo­ple called it plas­tique in the news.
