Rare Winchester Carbine Photos

Thought the members would like to see just how Winchester U.S. M-1 Carbine Rifles were packed and shipped to England during the 1941-42 Lend-Lease Act involked by then President Roosevelt. This is a very rare photo from my files. I have many other wartime photos that I will be putting up on the wartime efforts of the american people. This story should be told for the new kids, to see just what our Grand-parents went through to protect their rights and freedoms they enjoy today! This may not be the place for it, but it's our history, and I thank them everyday for such sacrifices, for the freedom I enjoyed from 1944 to date..

There have been several times that I have heard commentary to the effect that there was "several months worth" of production by SG that got torpedoed in a boat crossing the Atlantic. As the resident "SG Guru" have you ever encountered/heard of that, Chuck?

I read in one of the books that SG carbines are not found in the precent of their numbers manufactured. It was a guess that a large number of them could have been lost in transit.

I think the arsenal that made that material was close to Chattanooga and is now a haven for off road vehicles and even the location of some off road racing.

OMG! My head is spinng of the thought, of all those 100% correct Winchesters in the original box!! Wow....it is tough to even imagine.

Thanks for the neat pics!

O, and to the guy who wants the girl in the front...unless your about 90 years old, I don't think she would be up for to much from a younger guy :P lol... , now if this WAS 1944...then I'd say go for it!

A soldier of the home front saves all waste fats and greases so that they can be processed into ammunition for America's soldiers of the battlefronts.
