Some random comments on reddit about A British Special Boat Squadron Corporal sharpens his knife before a raid in the Aegean, July, 1944
- Man O Manischewitz! I could not wait for the Sears Xmas catalog to come out that year because there she was, the best, the only, the greatest toy ever invented and she was all mine . That facker saw a lot of pretend combat in the ensuing two years.
- Thats... amazing! Never had anything like that!
- I spent a lot of hours and killed a lot of Germans playing with that.
- What kind of rifle is that?
- looks like an M1 Carbine
- I have one, passed down from my Dad, I don't know where he got it, but I see why it was chosen by this elite troop, it is very accurate.
- Check these marksmen out
- It was probably a bit like the Thompson SMG. The Brits used those too. I'm willing to bet that the M1 Carbine was used more by commandos and SAS than your typical infantryman. They still used the good old Lee-Enfield.
