JOHNSON LMG

This photo, from a 1943 copy of the USMC magazine "The
Leatherneck," shows a USMC paramarine corporal firing
a Johnson 1941 LMG. The weapon, weighing slightly more than
an M-1 but packing more power than a BAR, was a favorite
of the 1st Special Service Force (aka "The Devil's Brigade").
