George,

There is a partial fleeting glimpse of a the back half of a SPM on Red 2 after the battle in this color video link, minute 4:20. Looks to be painted all forest green

    Are there no other images of the SPM 75mm gun half-tracks at Tarawa other than the fleeting distant dark profile of the half-track on Red Beach Three? Sure would like to know if they were marked or... more

        Found this as well. At 3:54 we see the Japanese Power Plant #2 at Red Beach One in what was 'The Pocket'. https://digital.tcl.sc.edu/digital/collection/MarineCorps/id/1998/rec/3

        Thanks Durk. Such a fleeting glimpse but a glimpse nonetheless.

      Only images I have found of SPM's are Weap2 on Saipan or Tinian. http://www.tarawaontheweb.org/selfpropelledmount.htm Jon
