Here are several photographs of armed sailors from the USS Luzon in 1931. The individual mugging for the camera is Finn W. Outler who served on the USS Beaver, USS Panay and the USS Luzon. Note the Thompsons, BARs and Lewis gun.

Really great pictures, that's for posting them! Interesting to see the Chinese sailor accompanying the shore party as well. You can tell the difference in his white uniform, it has buttons down the front and a standing collar. He's got some equipment strapped to his back and since these guys weren't supposed to carry arms, maybe he's the groups cook?

I saw the Chinese in the different uniform. I bet he may be the cook. Did you see the Navy medic with the Horse Marines that I posted under uniforms section as an addition to a question on one of your posts?

There seems to be two of them, maybe they are not Chinese but Filipinos, the Navy was using Filipinos in the Navy as Messmen.

Too bad tou didnt add all this to the topic in the Naval Forum, there's a great topic on Sailors as Infantry, loads of photos to be found there.
