Our Army 1942 10 (PDF)


Coming Soon



Vol. XIV No. 10 ……. Cover: The cover picture this time is of the “Jungle Mudders” – three Soldiers who are campaigning on one of our bases in the Caribbean. They are Coast Artillerymen and normally man one of the C.A.’s big guns – coast defense or anti-aircraft, but they are trained in every phase of jungle warfare. In case of an enemy landing they might have to meet the enemy as Infantry troops, creeping through the mud and disease infested jungles to ferret out the opposing troops one by one. And they are being trained for just that. The three Soldiers shown in the picture have just come through a grueling jungle scouting expedition and while they show signs of considerable wear and tear – they are still smiling. It’s all in the day’s work for the Soldier! The photo is Army Official, special to Our Army Magazine. …….. Inside Articles: … Front and Center ….. Editorial ….. Top Kicks Attain Top Pay …..
