60mm mortars...

 In the post yesterday with the picture of the soldier/Marine with the array of early WWII weapons, the question came up of whether or not the 60mm was missing it's bipod.

No.  That was the "light" version of the 60mm mortar, which was a smaller baseplate and no bipod.

At the Castle, we have a later version of it, oft-times termed the "Airborne" version - where the baseplate is even smaller. The one in this picture also has the post-war sight attached to it.  

Sorry for the clutter - I didn't have time to move stuff around to get to it this morning!


See! Even the U.S. Army occasionally allows for people like me!
