Amazing! IF you find any more of Stuart tanks in either theater please PM them to me, working on a project with one of the factories where they were produced!

Here's one from after the battle.

 

The thing that always struck me about that first photo is how absolutely pristine those weapons look... like they didn't get much use before they were captured.

 

I am not seeing a US weapon in the second photo. Can somebody point it out please.

The Heer soldier on the left holding the M1A1 Bazooka has captured Allied parachute material fashioned over his helmet! :huh:

The Second photo of the thread? It looks like an M1 Carbine is in the hands of the soldier on the right

Damn! Thank you for posting that. Did that photo have a location listed??? Those were used very sparingly by the Marines only up until Saipan...

Lack of stowage boxes for grousers behind the air filters and the civilians makes me guess Philippines 1942 Provisional Tank Group USAFFE

No, not the second photo of the thread, the second photo in post #8, which is after the one of the pristine M-1's I was referring to.

Yes I actually found reference to this captured M3 being used against the 4th Marines at Bataan in a book while researching term paper!

Here's a M1 being used, a German Grenadier of an unidentified unit during the Ardennes Offensive.

 

This is a still I was able to scan just now from The After the Battle book, The Battle of the Bulge Then and Now. The actual footage I do believe is seen in full in The World at War, the 1944 ETO episode. He eating a candy bar there, Hmm might be German, not sure if it's American.

I don't like to be morbid but of all these photographs, some of that weaponry was probably taken off of dead GIs.

Interested in items related to:

-Amarillo A.A.F. / Amarillo Air Force Base

-Military instillations located in the Texas Panhandle, South Plains, and West Texas.

-"F" Company, 142nd Infantry Regiment, 36th Infantry Division (Texas National Guard)

-413th Civil Affairs Battalion (USAR)

Yeah I've been looking at this photo literally for 31 years, got that book in April 1985, so it's burned into my memory bank, that and seeing the footage two or three times during the same period.

 

The footage, it could very well be on You Tube, but I would know where it begin to look.
