https://www.nytimes.com/2021/05/28/world/europe/faye-schulman-dead.html) of a lady (Faye Schulman) who was a resistance fighter and photographer in WWII. It’s worth reading, but the interesting part for the High Road is the photo of her which I’ll try to include below. It is credited as 1943 in Poland, and she’s sighting (sort of—grip is a bit unusual) a rifle with a drum magazine located very far forward. Or maybe it’s something else and I’m interpreting it poorly. Being the NYT, of course there is no informative caption about the gun... Does anyone recognize it? I can’t imagine how the action would work with it, but I am no mechanical engineer. It almost looks like a movie prop—I’m sure you didn’t get a lot of time to pose for pictures in 1943 in the woods of Poland so it would be entirely understandable to take some PR shots later and over the course of nearly 80 years provenance gets confused. It is certainly a beautiful picture.
