SS Rifle info
I am searching and documenting info on my Grandfathers WD AGO Form 53-55 and on line 31: Military Qualification it says SS Rifle (or S5 Rifle, hard to tell which).
I am sort of a gun nut but I have been unable to find more info on this Rifle.Does anyone one have more info on this?
My Grandfathers name was Harold Jerrow (We called him Buster) and he served with Company "B" 1299th Engr Combat Battalion from 4 DEC 43 through 28 DEC 43. Looks like he served overseas in the Philippines (awarded Philippine Liberation Ribbon) and in Japan.
Any info would be greatly appreciated.
