INP News Media photo, dated July 4, 1943

Men of the 135th Amphibious Combat Engineers wade ashore from landing craft during a mock assault near Camp Edwards, Massachusetts. The rifles they're carrying are Winchester Model 1917 Enfield rifles chambered for the .30-06 round, which were apparently used in training and later exchanged for the M-1 Garand.
