For my birthday last July my wife bought a 10 DVD series called "WWII The Complete History". It is in newsreel format with short segments, ususally 5 minutes or less, in chronological order. Just finished it tonight.

In the 3rd segment from the end there is a story on combat photographers. A quick flash went by of a soldier holding a gun that looked very familiar. After going back and forth a few times I confirmed it. This is a Mosin. Looks like a M91/30 due to the globe front sight.

Look at the uniform. What can you tell me about this picture?

This was from a WWII newsreel. Sure it could be posed. No reason to fake the date. There was lots of footage shot during the war and the hard part would be cutting it down to 30 hours. No need to fake any. This was 5 seconds of a 30 hour series.
