I just received this photo, which was described as "Marines guarding prisoners, Vera Cruz, Mexico."
Based on the fact that the Marines are wearing lift-the-dot cartridge belts and are armed with Enfield rifles and bayonets, the image must date to WWI or maybe post WW I.
Written in ink (fountain pen) on the reverse of the postcard is: "Marines guarding prisoners from the fort whom we made do much of our work."
Does the inscription provide any clues as to when and where this image was taken?
Looking forward to hearing from the hard-core USMC collectors.
Thanks for looking. World War I Nerd ...
