New member asking for help.  I served in the Navy in WWII, and encountered a variety of small arms, but never a M1 Carbine. Obviously there was some use in 1945, so does anyone have information about where they were deployed, for what purpose, and how many in WWII?   I know they were ubiquitous in the Korean conflict so I am not asking about that period. Any clues appreciated.

My dad was in the Navy serving on an aircraft carrier in the Pacific and brought back an M1 carbine.

I have an I.R.Co stock that is named to a now deceased navy vet under the buttplate. I may have photos of it somewhere, I will have to see if I can dig them up if it helps any.

They have been shown to being used on PT boats. There are many photos showing them in use covering japanese prisoners. I believe they were used by submarine landing parties as well.
