  "Ike" (at right-center, pointing downrange) observes the use of a .45 cal. sub-caliber tank gunnery device while on an inspection of Division training in February, 1944, at Warminister, Wilts, England. The specific 3AD unit was not identified, but the above tank and crew were would have been from either the 32nd or 33rd Armored Regiment. Unit markings were apparently covered (above) for pre-invasion security reasons, given the presence of photographers.
