BHC 000541 US Rangers Weymouth pre-embarkation

Ref: BHC 000541

Rangers of Co. E, 5th Ranger Battalion on board a LCA at Weymouth. Left to right: T / 5 Joseph J. Markowitz (ASN 32534313), Robert Presutti, Cpl. John B. Loshiavo. All of the Rangers carry a gas mask on their chest webbing in a neoprene bag. In the upper left part of the picture you can see a Bangalore torpedo attached to a Garand with the central well detonator at the tip. In the center of the picture you can see a Bazooka whose shield is apparent (this shield protects the face of the firer from the powder particles of the rocket). The Rangers share a packet of Lucky Strike White Paper cigarettes, the packaging remains white sacrificing its original green colour to reserve for use in dyeing kit for military manufacture.
