Note the ARV ahead in the first photo. Also notice the interesting small arms the doughs are holding. Looks like an M1903A3 with a reversed bayonet (didnt know you could do that) on the right, an M1928 Thompson in the middle, with long barrel but M1 style square foregrip (again a mystery) and on the left I thought from the grip it was an Enfield, but on second thought it must be an M1 Carbine.
