Battle Lessons Replace Text Books

The boys just over from the States may already have learned plenty about the .50 cal. machine-gun – but they can still learn a lot more from men who have been on a score or more of missions against the enemy. S/Sgt. Harvey W. Banks of New York (left) gives instruction on the gun to Sgt. Earl R. Heitlage of St. Bernard, Ohio, and S/Sgt Loren F. Darling of Sac City, Iowa.
