|It must have been a real bitch to lug that Thompson around all day.|
But look at the BAR man.. he looks worn out..
Got word back that this was on Okinawa in '45

The main thing that makes me realize they're not is that none are looking at the camera!
Did you notice that the bazooka isn't loaded? Take a good look, no fins for either of the 2.36 inch rocket variants are shown coming out of the breech end, either would be sticking at least an inch at the least out the back, otherwise, the wires wouldn't reach the leads to set it off. The M9 didn't have any manner of telescopic sight. Wonder why he's doing that, then?
I gotta admit, seeing a drum that late is pretty darn unusual, though!

Since the bazooka is unloaded I wonder if he's still got his head down from the back blast...
