    This is such a great photo I had to share it with the forum.

    I found it at the NARA on Friday.

    Caption reads:

    "Lt. John Lee Warner, British Rifle Instructor at a
    Commando Depot, somewhere in Britain, giving
    instructions to U.S. Rangers, who are training there.

    "Scotland, February 9, 1943.

    "Lt. John Lee Warner of 29th Ranger Bn., Speanbridge, Scotland."

    If anyone wants a high-res version of the photo, just let me know.
