Gentlemen,
This first photo is a file by date that SA was to send to Ordnance. I have some of these that did make it and were not destroyed. They give us some very important data as to M1 Garand Production and other data. I hope you enjoy. I am also way down as to my sites. You older guys know what I need.

Here's the Quiz.
Can you name the two men in this photo and what they are doing ??

eclancy - I believe that the gentleman on the left is Secretary of War Stimson, and the General facing him is General Pershing. I think it is the Press Release version of the Acceptance of the M1 Garand by the U. S. Army.

Well, I tried!

Gentlemen,
The officer is Gen. Charles M. Wesson, Chief of Ordnance, the other man is Edwin Pugsley of Winchester and he is presenting the General with Winchester's first production rifle. I thought that the hand written file would also be of interest.
Thanks again
Clancy
PS Gyrene Nice Try
