COUNTER-SNIPERS

This rare photo shows a pair of 34th Infantry Division counter-
snipers carrying Model 1903 Springfield sniper rifles fitted with
scopes moving cautiously through the streets of a northern Italian
town. Each sniper is accompanied by a partner armed with an M-1.
One sniper is on the far left; the other brings up the rear, with
his escort in front. Their job is to engage and kill enemy snipers.
