Don’t be a Dope!

This illustration from the “Don’t be a Dope! Handle Equipment Right!” series was included in the ordnance parts manual for the M55 quad .50 caliber machine gun trailer. Appropriate to the subject of the manual, the artist has added an M55 mount and trailer to the illustration.

Don't be a dope. Handle Equipment Right.

To prove that he’s game as the fliers
Whose daring the public admires,
Joe Dope hurls his loads
Over rock-studded roads—
And boy! is it tough on the tires!
