Women At Home On The (Firing) Range Women who just a short while ago thought of a range as something to cook on and powder as something to pat on their faces are now doing the work of men on the firing range at the Army Ordnance Department’s providing grounds at Aberdeen, Md. They don’t just fool around with the light work, either. They fill shells with powder and prime them. They run huge cranes to assemble the big guns. And they load, clean, and fire everything from Garand rifles and Tommy guns to the big railroads guns. A group of the girls riding the range in a Jeep pass a huge stack of 16-inch shells. Photo measures 9 x 7.25 inches. Photo is dated 06-06-1942.”
