40th Division painted M1917

Recommended Posts

Got this at a local auction a few years ago. But recently a photo was brought to my attention of a group of 40th ID soldiers crowded around an M1A1 Wheeled Machinegun Mount who are all wearing the very same style helmets. That machinegun cart was adopted in 1932, so the photo is circa mid-1930's.
