  16. Hi all,
    The answer to the last one is goofey. Winchester is asking Ordnance if they can sell one (1) M1 Garand ....The Military Attache, Netherland Legation, Washington, D. C. Netherland East Indies Gov't is ok'd "for immediate delivery with deferment of one (1) rifle on the current War Department contract with your firm."
    I hope this data helps.
    Thanks again

    Now is this the Dutch who had at this time ordered the original contract for the 1941 Johnson? Folks always think the Johson was a U.S. military rifle when it was not. The Dutch had the first and only contract. Did they want to do a comparison of the two rifles? It would seem they were attaked and ran which made it impossible to order Garands?
    Thanks again Ed this is always fun. Rick B
