    19 Jan 22 Garand Picture of the Day



    When the men of 41 Commando were sent to Korea, they were outfitted and equipped by the United States Army. The men wore U.S. Army uniforms, carried U.S. Army weapons, but retained their distinctive green berets. Thus equipped the men of 41 Commando carried out numerous operations behind North Korean People’s Army (NKPD) lines, as well as in areas held by the Chinese Communist forces which had crossed the Yalu River and pushed the American Tenth Corps back towards the coast.

    Behind enemy lines the men of 41 Commando operated with elements of the United States Marine Corps as well as Republic of Korea’s Marine Corps. 41 Commando Marines ambushed enemy troops, destroyed rail lines, communications, and destroyed key logistical support elements. 41 Commando was also part of the general retreat from the Chosin Reservoir where several divisions of Chinese forces attacked the American Tenth Corps.

    There are no great men, only great challenges that ordinary men are forced by circumstances to meet.

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.
