1925 International team and rifles.
Hello all, Im new here but have been hanging around on the 24 hour for a number of years. I collect old photos and Im trying to identify the people in one I bought.
I know that one of the men Is Morris Fisher. He has a photo of himself kneeling in the same place as this photo was taken in his book Mastering the Rifle, but the place is not identified. The rifles in the photo are the 1924 International Match rifles. I learned from Brophy's book that the 1924 rifles where used in 25 also. The photographers location on the back of my photo is St Gallen, same place as the 1925 international match was held.
I was able to find a photo in the 1922 ARMS AND THE MAN of the team going to Rheims.
Im wondering if anyone here has a photo of the 1925 International Match team with names?
This Is the photo That I think may be the 1925 team.

Isn't that Calvin Lloyd on the far right? He was an impressive shooter, and I never understood why he committed suicide or in the manner he did. It has always been something of a Marine Mystery.
