A Unique M1 Garand

Well, possibly.
The photo caption says:
Garand Mle 1936
Mounting in English beech of 1942.
The weapon was parachuted has the resistance "of Glières", close to Annecy, in 1943
It does not have markings of American property.
Photos send by "Alain"
If verified that would be outstanding. Unfortunately, there is no close-up photo of the receiver.

Walt Kuleck and Scott Duff could probably validate it. They hang out at

Both have written extensively on the Garand and other military rifles.
