Hello Tony,

I can't help you with any photo's, but I have a couple of M-2-4's in my yard. I live within 10 miles of Camp Pendleton in Oceanside, California. My neighbour works on Base and tells me they have quite a Museum. If you can give me a little time, I will contact the Public Relations and/or the Museum and see if they have any photo archives of M-2-4's or Rocket Launcher's.

I will also try the Local VFW and see if any former Marines have any info.

Regards,

Paul

Hello Tony,

Sorry about the delay in getting back with you. I didn't have any luck contacting any former Marines who knew the International M-2-4. I did go on base and take a look at the Museum but it was all recent stuff, Vietnam and later.

I was able to contact a woman who works in a Dept. on Camp Pendleton. This was back in early December (I misplaced her address) and although I've forgotten her job title, she did say you could contact her for help or she could put you in touch with someone who could help you.

Her e-mail was Faye.Jonason@usmc.mil

If I can help in any other way, let me know.

Paul

I am no good at doing the img thingie but if this works it is a lousy shot of a rocket launcher. I have a better one somewhere and will either post it or try to email it to you.

Tony,

I just located a 2 page photo of 2 Corn Binder rocket trucks in the back of a Ballentine's Illustrated History of World War II weapons book and sent you an email about it.
