Long term storage? War reserves?

Probably post-WW2 inspection/repair/storage program.

Gentlemen,

Many of you had the answer or were very close. The answer to the photo above shows the following:

These M1 Garand Rifles are being checked and greasing the rifles is done by hand.

Time frame about 1943 ?

Take a look at the next file.
Thanks again
Clancy
