    Nice pictures! I can't tell for sure, but it looks like the Brazilian soldier in his fox hole may be holding a 1903a3 Springfield. PIctures of the a3 in combat are not very common.
    Initially the United States supplied its surplus Springfield rifles to the Brazilians. Over time, M1 garand rifles and carbines reached the Brazilians

    This is not a WWII photo. It was taken in 1961 in Suez, but the man in the middle of the photo was a well-known WWII veteran here in Brazil for having been the earliest president of the War Veterans Association.

    The last photo is of 2 Brazilian lieutenants posing at a monument in France.

    These are all the photos I have of Brazilians in World War II. They are increasingly difficult to find although it is still possible to find them with some ease.

    Soon I will have 2 or 3 more photos of the Brazilian expeditionary force. When I have them I will post them here.

    I hope you enjoyed
