BAR in US squad

Recommended Posts

Re: BAR and ammunition.

Theoretically, every rifle squad had a BAR man and an assistant BAR man. Both men, again theoretically, were equipped with the BAR belt, enabling a total of 24 magazines to be available for immediate use, with the assistant using bandoliers for his own [rifle] ammunition. The BAR belt with the built-in butt rest was a First World War legacy.
