M29 Weasels Tracked Vehicle of 10th Mountain Division

This picture was taken in 1943 or 1944 and showing Richard Foggarty of the US Tenth Mountain Division poses beside two M29 "weasels" (a snow tracked vehicle designed by Studebaker that could move through snow with ease) without canvas covers, near the S4 warehouse and 86th Regiment Headquarters at Camp Hale, Colorado. He is wearing a cap, a pullover sweater, khaki pants and boots. Note: mid/late M29s. Note 20" tracks and mudguards with foot plates, but no M29c style bolt patterns for float tanks.

  1. Gracious great! I was thinking about whether this would be coherent, so thank you for the criticism. We hadn't pondered the timing, yet that is great!
