    To be fair, probably a guy lying close at hand to most of them. Maybe they were still there after he was carried off by ambulance... That would be a dirty job, searching the field for dropped ordnance after battle. Both friendly and enemy would be collected.

    These are the rifles the mobile armories would have reconditioned and sent back into action, as written about by Ernie Pile.

    A couple of them appear to have the butt trap open so someone could get to the contents at some point.

    Sure, how many guys lose something or all of it and need a replen...and I'd be the first to point them over to that pile.
