Mr greg

Sir some of those boys look a lot older
than 1949, my guess is the 60s

In Cali but can't get a good location on it.
Camp Mc Quade was an anti-aircraft
training camp so it must have been near
the coast. I've found pictures of it and looks
like it's on some cliffs

Somebody tell me what is in the box at lower left.
I don't think you can get those anymore.

They go with the first piece on the left next to the pistols.. We still used the same thing in the dept.. Theve changed the stock a bit on the newer ones..sorta like an M79 blooper.. one round top break, breach fed.. The thing is why they would have them.. We used them to shoot all sorts of diffrent gas rounds, but it looks like those guys are shooting something with a bit more of an UMPH than teargas.

Guess they didn't think about it.. these guys were no doubt the real mccoy back in the day, and of course knew what they were doing.. Yep vaq that be a thompson, and im guessing the guy in the middle in front of the other striped thompson with the drum mag is the president..

Notice the jacket he's wearing thats one of those original bomber jackets, I'm thinking these old boys had it going on..

Guys ive gota get some stuff done.. getting lost in the archives of Sams pics is fun, but man the time flys... see ya all later..
