Interesting picture, Krag! Like to see the original! The two rifles to the right are '03s with some Chauchats mixed in. It is the first picture I have ever seen of Germans with U.S. captives - and the U.S. rifles!!

Supposedly a couple of engineer units got to France with Krags - a number of them (rifles) are mentioned as dating to November, 1917. Naturally, Krags were used in some numbers for training back in the States, as well. I've seen some Navy units with Krags in training.

I assume this is for an article? Let us know when it will appear and where!
