Photographs of Soviet Mechanised Troops

Hi, I am looking for clear photographs of Soviet Mechanised Guards troops making use of lend-leased American equipment - specifically those from the 1st, 2nd and 9th guards.

Just Google 9-й гвардейский механизированный корпус, for example and you will find plenty of nice photos.
Eg. some here: http://tankfront.ru/ussr/photo/gvmk09.html

The same for 1-й and 2-й
If we become increasingly humble about how little we know, we may be more eager to search.

Thank you, that site is a fantastic source.

Do you know which search term's I should use to find photos of the Mechanized infantry? I'd like to get a better idea of the equipment they carried, and whether it differed from the average Red Army infantryman.
