Acme News photo, dated May 31, 1944

Originally captioned: "A series of relayers is required to pass the heavy cartridge to the new 120-mm antiaircraft gun at Camp Davis, NC. Here, Cpl. Lowell G. Jackson, Marion, IL (left) passes a shell to Cpl. William Hunterm, Philadelphia, PA, ammunition chief, who in turn will pass it to a third man who inserts it into the gun for firing. The gun can propel a shell into the stratosphere."
