Did The Us Military Use Vertical Foregrips?

The found in the wall Thompson thread got Me thinking about this. I have seen British militay Thompson pics with both the vertical and horizontal foregrip and have heard that the US issued the vertical grip occasionally but have never seen a picture of any US Thompsons with that style grip. I have seen one US soldier with that style grip but it didn't look like a US issued weapon The gun in wall thread got Me curious about this as they mentioned it may have been a military issue.

I'm sure one of the much more knowledgable gurus can elaborate.

In the late thirties, the forming of 1st Armored division, the horizontal grip is shown on Thompsons held by the tankers & scouts.....Ft.Knox, the Home of Armor...........jw
