Default Photo Analysis of Carbine Configurations at Normandy

This is an outstanding study of carbine configurations based on photos taken at Normandy and other ETO operations. Click on "Source Photographs used in the Study" at the bottom of the page. Also read the author's conclusions as to high vs. low wood stocks etc.

This site is a tutorial for WWII re-enactors and the proper way to look for accuracy.

A very clear Winchester WRA/GHD stock cartouche can be seen in photo 3.

Going to have to spend some time going through these photos. My great uncle was a member of the 90th ID, 315th Engineers. KIA June 14, 1944. I know these photos depict many different units, but there are some 90th photos there.
