Re: Pacific Lists,

USMC Late 1943-1945
Senior and junior leaders should be carrying either a M1 rifle or the M1 carbine. There were no smg's in the infantry regiment TO&Es. Series E had 78 Thompsons, Series F and G divisions only had 49 Thompsons in their TO&Es. Info from Vol. 5 USMC Operations in WWII.
