Victory Photograph 1946

As I was scanning this photograph today, it occurs to me that in a way it is sort of a victory photograph.
This squad of the Jewish Brigade have fought the Nazis in Italy.
Here they  are photographed in Holland in 1946 while participating in an operation to smuggle holocaust refugees from Germany towards France where they could be sent to Palestine. 
Mordo is smiling on the lower right side of the photograph.
Incidentally the side arms in this photograph are the notorious American Tommy Guns.
