Re: Looking for a Spanish American issue rifle...

Sean- Nothing in SRS for USS Gillespie or DD-609. There are a few M1903s in the 3.1- 3.2M range related to USN "Advanced Bases" in the Pacific, but with only one or two exceptions nothing to specific navy ships until nearly 3.3M range, and most of those appear to be amphibious ships, not destroyers.
Destroyers were still required to have "landing parties" in WW2, and I suspect they would be higher priority for issue of M1 rifles by the time the DD609 was delivered, but there are no listings for that ship in the Garand data either.
