Checking Their Guns

ACME News photo dated March 17, 1942

The same ship shown in the previous Photo of the Day is shown at sea with a number of troops tending to a 37mm automatic antiaircraft gun. Note the soldier wearing a canteen even while aboard ship at the center of the photo. Another ship in the convoy can be seen in the background.
