I was going threw my collection of reference pics that I collect from miscellaneous internet searches and came across this interesting picture. It shows WW2 US soldiers at a 88MM shell case factory. After viewing CSAEOD’s recent auction DVD I learned that at one time the US actually manufactured its own 88 cases after they recovered a few German 88MM guns. Apparently, the guns were easy to come by but the ammunition was not so the US made its own. Not sure if this was done to study the enemies technology or for the US to actually use the guns and ammo against the Germans?Anyhow, can anyone tell if this is a US factory or a German factory. If you look super close, you will notice that the emblems over the soldiers “Heart Area” were censored out with WW2 photoshop :-) Also, does anyone have a clue why they are holding hammers? They are also wearing beat up and ripped up gloves.
